These basil and strawberry daiquiris make a refreshing summer cocktail, but with an unconventional herbal twist. Created by Eva Kosmas Flores from Adventures in Cooking and featured on Design Love Fest, the recipe for Strawberry Basil Daiquiris is made with a basil simple syrup, strawberries, lime juice, rum and crushed ice.

The alcoholic beverage is an excellent example of how to incorporate seasonal fruit like the strawberry. Homemade happy hour is about to get a lot sweeter with these strawberry daiquiris. Budding bartenders should note the flavor of the berries is enhanced by using them raw instead of cooking them down. The ice also serves to not just keep the drink cool, but also bring out more flavor.
