Strawberry Basil Gin Rickey Recipe

Strawberry Syrup

Add sliced strawberries and basil and continue to cook until strawberries are mushy. Press the strawberries to release all their juices. Let syrup cool and strain through a fine mesh sieve. Syrup can be stored in a glass jar with a lid for up to 1 month.

-          1.75oz gin

-          1oz lime juice

-          1oz strawberry syrup
