Drink Recipe of the Week: Strawberry Bourbon Lemonade
8 oz. bourbon
2 c. strawberries
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. fresh lemon juice
12 basil leaves
What to do:
Add strawberries, sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a blender. Pulse until pureed.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the puree and 1 3/4 cup water. Heat to boiling, then allow to cool and strain through a sieve.

Cheers to summer memories!
