5.17.20 I’m pretty basic when it comes to cocktails: a Maker’s Mark Manhattan, very dry Tanqueray martini with a twist, or a scotch and water. But this combination piqued my curiosity. Granted, it’s a bit fancy-schmancy for me, but the combination of the strawberries, fresh basil, and bourbon are really harmonious. A break from tradition today for a pre-dinner cocktail, and we enjoyed it! Read More

I substituted the lemon juice with fresh lime juice. It was delicious and would make it again. Read More
