3. Strawberry Basil White Wine Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 2 large strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons basil-flavored simple syrup
  • Ice
  • About 5 ounces chilled dry white wine
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • basil sprig (for garnish)

In a chilled highball glass, combine strawberries and simple syrup. With a wooden spoon, break strawberries into large chunks. Fill glass about halfway with ice, pour wine and lemon juice over ice and stir. Garnish with basil sprig.

If making your own simple syrup, combine one cup of water, one cup of sugar and half a cup of basil leaves into a pot. Simmer on medium heat until sugar has dissolved. After mix has cooled, pour through a strainer to make sure the syrup is pure.
