Thirsty Thursdays: Strawberry Basil Mojito

These are absolutely delish.  A little twist on the classic mojito, the strawberry basil mojito has an intriguing taste and tastes just as fresh; making it the perfect summer cocktail.  You can change up the strawberry for raspberry if you wish.  I believe I even had it in martini form with balsamic reduction in it.  Delicious I tell you!!  Don’t take my word for it, try it out yourself!

Strawberry Basil Mojito

3 fresh strawberries
3-5 fresh basil leaves
2 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. white rum
crushed ice
club soda

Slice the strawberries and place at the bottom of a tall glass along with the basil leaves. Pour in the simple syrup and muddle the mixture. Stir in the rum and top with crushed ice. Top off with club soda and garnish with strawberry slices.
