STRAWBERRY BASIL VODKA TONIC


It was hot and muggy from storms that were crawling up from the Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to the humid heat all I wanted was something tall, cool and refreshing and a moment to sit out on my deck and watch the storm clouds roll in. I had a few strawberries in my little deck garden, I always have fresh basil in the summertime and I had vodka and tonic water. Muddle, mix, pour, garnish. Done.

Ah, relief.
