Strawberry Basil Mojitos

Say what?

You read it correctly. Strawberry. Basil. Mojitos.

This recipe came about when I bought, like, 5 lbs of strawberries on sale and I was frankly sick of eating them everyday.

What better way to utilize the strawberries then to put them in booze. I mean come on. This is basically summer in a glass my friends.

I know it’s not your average Mojito, but this twist takes the mojito to a whole new level. And it’s damn good level.

Try it out and let me know what you guys think in the comments below. I love hearing from you all 🙂
