Strawberry Basil Smash

Strawberry Basil Smash

The summer invokes memories of picnics, picking strawberries and the herbs growing in the garden. Basil works very well in cocktails as shown in the basil smash, so we thought we would add an extra ingredient to celebrate summer, the mighty strawberry.

We recommend using locally sourced strawberries that carry flavour, as these flavours will shine through.

It is fresh, exciting and delicious.
