Basil Summer Cocktail


If there’s one thing that summer screams in our mind, it’s cocktails. Now that we think about it, every season happens to scream cocktails but if we had to be all picky and choosy over when the best time to have a drink is [yikes, the torture!] we would have to spin the wheel and make our fingers land on summer. Between the sunshine, the heat and the fresh ingredients waiting to be picked at our fingertips, there is no better time to break open that liquor cabinet and let your imagination run wild.

With strawberries being in peak season right now we thought it would be fun to put a summer twist on the already refreshing Moscow Mule. Hopefully, there are fellow Mule lovers out there who will appreciate this summery concoction as much as we do. Add in hints of basil, lime, and ginger and this is a drink you will be sippin’ on for months to come.
