Berries and Basil

Make a refreshing springtime cocktail or mocktail. It's one of my faves.

How about a Basil Berry Mojito? This spring you can enjoy a cool and fresh cocktail or mocktail made right at home. It's easy and tastes so good. From my home to yours. 


2 oz white rum 

1 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz simple syrup 

6-8 fresh strawberries, hulled 

8-10 fresh basil leaves 

Soda water 



1. Muddle the strawberries and basil leaves in a shaker.

2. Add rum, lime juice, and simple syrup to the shaker with ice.

3. Shake well and strain the mixture into a glass filled with ice.

4. Top with soda water for some fizz.

5. Garnish with a strawberry slice, lime, lemon and a sprig of basil.

6. Enjoy your refreshing Basil Berry Mojito!

Feel free to adjust the sweetness, add more herbs to suit your taste or leave out the rum altogether for a cool fresh mocktail. Cheers!
