Strawberry Basil Tequila Soda
Tequila sodas have been my go-to these days. It is either because I really enjoy tequila sodas or my friends are constantly ordering them; either way they are delicious. This is my spin on a super simple drink which will surely impress.
2-3 strawberries, halved
3 fresh basil leaves, torn
1oz fresh lime juice*
1. In a glass or cocktail shaker add strawberries, basil and lime juice. Muddle until combined.
2. Add tequila and stir. Pour over ice.
3. Top with club soda. Garnish if desired.
*If you have the option pick fresh lime juice over bottled lime juice, DO. I recognize fresh lime juice does take longer to make, cutting limes in half and juicing them can be a chore when you just want a cocktail, but trust me it is worth the extra effort. Bottled lime juice almost always contains preservatives and water which are easily avoidable by purchasing fresh limes. There are lots of great options for citrus juicers but this is what I am using right now.
