Strawberry Basil Smash

Strawberry Basil Smash Summer Cocktail Recipe

With this heat wave in NYC, it definitely feels like it's finally summer. Kid's in camp, air conditioners are installed, and we finally got around to planning a beach vacation. 

My favorite way to beat the heat this weekend? A super easy and delicious strawberry rum smash cocktail. You probably have the ingredients — strawberries, rum, sugar, lime juice, basil — and its slushy, fruity goodness is exactly the kind of treat that's perfect on a hot summer night.
