Even though summer may seem months away, I wanted to share this refreshing low calorie recipe for the best Strawberry Basil Cocktail.  Be sure to serve this drink in a beautiful glass and you will be transported pool side (in a itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini).  At least you’ll feel that way after a few of these…..Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Strawberry Basil Cocktail

1 cup / 8 ounces club soda
1 ounce (shot) white rum (vodka can be used if you prefer)
10 mint leaves, washed
4 sliced strawberries
1/2 of lime

In a sturdy glass, muddle mint leaves, strawberries, and lime slices by gently pressing on and twisting the mint leaves and lime.  If you do now own a muddle, use a large slotted spoon to mash the ingredients together.  Add the remaining ingredients  with 1 cup of crushed ice.  Gently stir and garnish with a mint sprig and a lime wedge before serving. Enjoy!
