Strawberry Love

More evil drink experiments on unsuspecting victims.

This weekend I subjected Mistress Lauren, lawyer in waiting, to my newest mixture. She approved, I approved, now you be the judge.




Strawberry Basil Slammer



1 Sprig Basil
1/4 C Strawberries, thinly sliced
2 T Powdered Sugar
2 Ounces Vodka
1 Ounce Lemon Juice
3 Ounces Club Soda



1 Mix strawberries with basil and powdered sugar. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
2 Muddle together strawberry mixture and place in a cocktail shaker with ice, lemon juice and vodka. Shake briefly.
3 Pour the whole thing into a glass, top with soda, stir and serve.

LOL.
When first looking at that picture, I thought there was a ladyfinger (literally) sticking out of the drink. Now that would be some strawberry love!!

I copied that recipe for future use. Sounds really good, thanks!

Bunn Bunn, I cannot afford such glamour in accessories, as you can see I had to use a glass rather than those high-falutin Solo cups :)

Jim, you have way too much time on your hands! If my drinks require more than the liquor and ONE mixer, they start getting complicated :) HOWEVER, feel free to mix a drink for me any time :)
