I love strawberries. Especially fresh ripe strawberries. These are still growing. I hope I am around to enjoy the ones growing in my garden, so I will make do with store bought ones.
I had another week of being really busy. What happened to my cushy life that included time for a nap???? Soon summer will be here and I will have more time to play. Isn’t that what summer means, playtime and relaxation?
I needed a pitcher of drinks. I am having people over and I am not patient enough to be fussing over martinis. One pitcher of strong drinks that I can cut with seltzer water for those folks who don’t need this as badly as I do.
Here it is.
1 can frozen pink lemonade. (or 1 packet of crystal light lemonade)
1/2 cup Strawberry Basil Vodka
6 Strawberries sliced.
1 Lemon thinly sliced.
1/4 cup of plain Vodka.
1 sprig of Basil
1 sprig of Mint
Slice strawberries and lemons, Place in Pitcher with 1/2 c plain vodka.
Toss in fridge and run around and solve assorted problems. ( there really isn’t a reason to wait)
Come back and pour in strawberry basil vodka
Add sprig of Basil and Spring of Mint
Mix lemonade according to directions on package in another container. Pour into pitcher. Add Ice.
Taste. if too potent mix into a single glass 1/2 cup Strawberry basil lemonade and 1/4 c seltzer.
