It’s Happy Hour Friday and I think it’s about time I posted an adult drink recipe, that possibly contains a bit of vodka – just a splash.
As strawberries come into season, why not do something different with them than the usual shortcake and jam? Give this colorful drink a try.
Basil mint adds a slightly licorice taste that works well with strawberries and lemon. Skip the vodka and you’ll still have a terrific slushie, making it perfect for drinkers and non-drinkers alike. (Mine contained vodka – that probably doesn’t surprise you.)
Time to drink!
Happy, Happy Hour Friday!
