Hello Blog Friends. Sheena's sister Shannon here with a fabulous cocktail recipe! A couple months ago, my husband and I went on an overnight getaway to Minneapolis and decided to stop at McCormick & Schmick's for happy hour.
I decided to try one of their seasonal drinks, a Strawberry Basil Smash, and it was so amazing.... but kinda spendy at $10 for this little drink. I was quite confident I could mimic it, and my version turned our pretty similar... and way more cost effective!
Strawberry Basil Smash (click here to print recipe)
What you need:
3-4 medium strawberries, quartered
4-5 small-medium basil leaves, torn
juice from 1/2 lime
2 ounces simple syrup
1 1/2 ounces gin
Put the strawberries, basil and lime juice in a pint sized glass. Smash with a muddler. Add ice until the glass is 3/4 full. Add simple syrup and gin, then top with club soda. Stir to combine and serve!
