STRAWBERRY BASIL MARGARITA COCKTAIL recipe

Strawberry Basil Margaritas have recently become my favorite summer drink.

With an over-abundance of fresh basil growing on my deck at lightening speed, I can barely keep up with the weekly harvest. Here in Minnesota, basil is one of those beloved herbs that can be prohibitively expensive at the grocery store in the winter – yet grow like a weed in the summer.

The thing I like most about basil are the endless things you can make with this gorgeous green plant. From traditional pesto to marinades and dressings, mojitos and margaritas, tea, syrup, ice cream and desserts.

The list goes on.

This versatile fragrant plant opens up a world of delicious options when it comes to getting creative in the kitchen. Starting with Strawberry Basil Margarita cocktails!
