summer cocktail :: frozen strawberry-basil mojitos

It's finally the time of year for refreshing poolside cocktails!  It was in the 90's here this weekend and I hit the pool with some of my very favorite people!  It was the perfect occasion to try out a new cocktail recipe.  A frozen strawberry-basil mojito...yummy!!  The basil was the perfect last minute addition to the beverage thanks to my friend Laura's garden.  I must say this drink was a hit and I can't wait to mix it up again!  Here are the tasty and refreshing details...

the goods:
1 can frozen limeade
2 cups frozen strawberries 
2 limes
fresh mint
fresh basil

mixing it all together:
toss the frozen limeade in the blender
fill the empty limeade can with rum and add in
throw in 2 cups frozen strawberries
in a separate cup...
squeeze the juice of 2 limes 
toss in fresh mint and basil and muddle it all together
add the mixture to the blender
top it all off with some ice and blend away!!!

cheers friends!
