  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 10-12 sodas 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/3 cup organic cane sugar
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • handful of fresh basil, roughly chopped or torn
  • sparking water (I like Le Croix)
  • fresh strawberries, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the chopped strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or even better, overnight.
  2. To serve, add a heaping spoonful of the strawberries and syrup to a glass. Add a few torn basil leaves and muddle to combine. Add ice, and a shot of gin or vodka, as desired. Top with 8 oz of sparkling water and garnish with fresh strawberries. Stir and enjoy!
