Valentine's Day Cocktail

Cheers to Valentine’s Day weekend! We’re bringing you a fresh take on the classic French 75. Sweet Strawberry Basil Puree, tart Lemon, floral Gin and bright champagne. This Strawberry Basil French 75 is perfect for a girls night or a romantic evening with your honey. Here’s how to make this marvelous cocktail.




First, you'll need to make your Strawberry Basil Puree


You'll need:

  • 5 whole strawberries, diced

  • ½ c sugar

  • ½ c water

  • 6 leaves of basil






On medium heat boil water and sugar together until sugar dissolves. Add strawberries and basil into sugar water and boil for 5-8 minutes. Stir and cook until strawberries are soft. Blend with a mixer and strain. Cool and refrigerate.

(Makes enough for 4-5 cocktails)


Now the magic:


1 oz. Strawberry Basil Puree

1/2 oz. lemon juice

1 1/2 oz. gin


Shake over ice, pour into champagne glass and top with champagne.


Cheers!
