I created this one night to use up some summer strawberries and some of my basil. What a refreshing and delicious summer drink! I know it sounds unusual, but try it and see!
- 1 cup hulled strawberries
- ¼ cup tequila
- 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau ®
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 3 large basil leaves
- 8 ice cubes
- Combine the strawberries, tequila, orange-flavored liqueur, lemon juice, sugar, and basil leaves in a blender; mix on low until smooth. Add the ice and puree until the ice is crushed, 30 to 60 seconds.
