A followup to our Dark & Frowny blackberry-basil Prosecco cocktail from yesterday, but this time with strawberries. The Madtini Intoxicologists are dying to try this with Kiwi soon, so stand by soon for a mix of New Zealand and Italy.
- 3 fresh sliced and hulled strawberries
- 3 large shredded basil leaves
- 1 oz Hendrick’s Gin
- 1 oz Sweet & Sour Syrup
- 2-3 oz Prosecco
Muddle the strawberries and shredded basil leaves in the bottom of a rocks glass, add Gin & sweet and sour syrup and stir. Fill 3/4 of the glass with crushed ice, and top off with the Prosecco.
