Blogger Brooke McLay from Cheeky Kitchen whips up a super-snappy margarita that will chill your lips and warm your belly! Adding fresh basil sets it apart from the traditional strawberry margarita.
SAVE ON THIS RECIPE!
Like a salted glass for your margarita? It’s easy to do: Rub the rim of the margarita glass with water, then dip into kosher (coarse) salt. You can also buy margarita salt for this purpose. Instead of water, try rubbing the rim with the same juice used in the cocktail, such as lemon juice in this recipe.
Make Raspberry Basil Margaritas by substituting fresh raspberries for the strawberries.
Don’t like tequila? Replace it with vodka for a Strawberry Basil Martini. Put the ice in a cocktail shaker or pitcher instead, then add the blended strawberry-basil mixture and shake or stir. Pour into chilled martini glasses, straining out the ice.
