I realize that I haven’t had a lot of food posts on the blog lately; Forgive me.
No matter what I have going on in my life, I always seem to manage Thirsty Thursdays.
My mom gave me this beautiful basil plant this week…
And I have an affinity for fresh strawberries…so you know what I did! The hint of pepper flavor in this Strawberry Basil Pepper Martini made it a little out of the ordinary (in a good way!) aside from a traditional strawberry basil martini.
Here are your ingredients: Absolut Peppar Vodka, fresh basil, fresh strawberries and lemon juice. You’ll also need a shaker and a muddler.
Muddle 2 large strawberries and 4 basil leaves in a shaker. Add ice, 2 ounces of Absolut Peppar Vodka and a splash of lemon juice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass.
Now go get to muddlin’…it’s Thursday! Cheers!
