Strawberry Basil Marriage in Heaven Cocktail

Good lemonade can be so refreshing and delicious. I remember back when I was in high school we’d go to Red Robin and always had glasses of their unlimited Strawberry Lemonade. My tastes have evolved from then. I thought, why not take strawberry lemonade and make it into a great modern cocktail? Modern cocktails always need a fresh herb. Strawberry and basil are great friends, and so they work so well together. Throw all these ingredients together, add some vodka (or gin) and you have a marriage made in heaven. Try my Strawberry Basil Marriage in Heaven cocktail tonight and you’ll want to enjoy it all summer.

how good is that
