This will certainly wet your whistle during the heat wave of summer. Perfect for parties, lazy afternoons, or the rare opportunities you get time alone. Goodness awaits...make yours soon. And for the minors, this is (almost) just as good sans Vodka.
Basil-Strawberry Vodka Lemonade
1 bottle vodka
2 liters sparkling water
2 bins of fresh strawberries (or 2 ten ounce packages of frozen strawberries)
1 12 oz can of frozen lemonade
1 bunch of fresh basil
Loosen 4 or 5 basil leaves and muddle with a bit of sugar and water. I also muddle a few of the berries. Combine all ingredients, mix, serve, and try not to claim it "didn't turn out well" so you can keep it all to yourself.
And while I am sipping on some of this delicious nectar, I am taking part in BlogHop '09.
There are such a fantastic group of writers in BloggyWorld. And I am getting to know some of them this weekend. Like to read along? Please do. Better yet, join.
