Strawberry Basil Margarita
July 18, 2010

My husband and I really like basil - but the basil flavor in this is overpowering. I used fresh basil picked directly from our garden - and wasn't real sure how big "large" leaves are. Some of our basil gets pretty big! I used what I would consider to be medium sized leaves, and it was still overpowering. I also used strawberries from our garden that had been frozen first. The flavor of the strawberries with the basil is good, but I don't want to taste the basil that much. I'm going to try this again next weekend, but only add a couple of small basil leaves (to "complement" the strawberry flavor), and I'll add more ice so I can enjoy this drink longer and the alcohol won't be so strong.
