The "Strawberry Jive" is a combination of fruits and herbs that is refreshing, not too sweet, and alight enough for these really hot DC summer days. Strawberry and basil are a classic combo, too.
Handful of fresh basil
½ oz agave syrup
1 oz orange juice
Splash of lemon juice
1½ Watershed Gin
Muddle two strawberries, the handful of fresh basil and agave syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the orange juice and lemon juice, along with the gin and a handful of ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with sliced strawberries and basil.
