"I served this cocktail for the first time at a wedding shower and it was a hit! Since then I make it whenever strawberries are in season. I have substituted raspberries when I had them on hand and it was great!"

  1. Place the strawberry basil leaves, and sugar into a cocktail shaker, and mash well with a cocktail muddler. Add half of the ice to the cocktail shaker, and place the rest into a tall glass. Pour in the gin and lemon juice, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into the chilled glass over the ice, top with the club soda, and stir to serve.

This was a very refreshing and delicious cocktail, especially if you like fresh strawberries. The basil really set it off nicely. Perfect!!

Awesome recipe....even had the boys drinking a few!!!

Outstanding recipe! Just begs to be named Strawberry Fields Forever...
