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...
1 can frozen limeade
2 cups frozen strawberries
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!!!
