  • 2 oz vodka
  • 2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 4 each strawberries (these were tiny, 2-3 medium, or 1 large would be about right)
  • 3 each basil leaves (these were big, so a bit more if they're smaller)


  • Add all ingredients to a shaker and muddle thoroughly!
  • Fill shaker with ice and shake 10 - 15 seconds.
  • Pour into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a smacked basil leaf and enjoy!


This came about from all the fresh goodies in our farm box (plus lemons from our tree). I wanted to do something summery but strawberry drinks can be over sweet so tempering it with a lot of lemon juice, a little simple syrup, and the delicious herbal basil makes this strawberry basil lemonade cocktail pop!
