This was the first thing we made with our freshly picked Long Island strawberries. In fact, I enjoyed it the day that we picked them. 🙂 It was jammy and absolutely fabulous.
The recipe was adapted from Food and Wine, contributed by José Zepeda. The sweetness can be easily adjusted by decreasing the amount of agave or simple syrup. It was a warm evening, so we served it over ice. Perfect.
Yield: 1 drink
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries with the basil leaves and simple syrup or agave nectar.
- Add ice and the remaining ingredients and shake well.
- Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with strawberry slices and basil, as desired.
