This past weekend, me, my honey and a group of friends headed up to our CSA (Eatwell Farms) for Strawberry Dayswhich resulted in carting home about 21lbs of fresh berries. I needed some new strawberry recipes, stat. I found a few wonderful cocktail recipes (here and here) that were simple and didn’t require a lot of prep, perfect. My version is below. Tastes like summer.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 strawberries, washed
  • 4-5 basil leaves, washed
  • 1/2 Meyer lemon (can sub regular lemon)
  • 1/4 tsp honey
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp of rose water (optional but highly recommended if you have some on hand)
  • 2 oz vodka
  • club soda
  • ice

Special Equipment: muddler

Remove stems of strawberries and cut in half. Place into cocktail shaker or tall glass, add basil leaves and smash using muddler. Squeeze meyer lemon juice into the glass, then add honey, vodka, and rose water. Stir vigorously. Fill your drinking glass with ice cubes. Pour strawberry vodka mixture into glass and add club soda. Pour this mixture back into the original mixing glass/cocktail shaker, then back into drinking vessel to mix. Done. Time to enjoy. Cheers!

I’m not sure about you, but I’ve never understood the statement “time is a social construct” more than I have in quarantine. Days seem to fly by while also taking forever all at the same time, and the pass of each month never ceases to take me by a great surprise. Keeping a routine and rhythm is the one thing that can gives me  some sense of “normalcy” and control in my day.
