Strawberry Jive

Strawberry Jive

DrinkTonight is an absolutely amazing Instagram account based in DC, and featuring fantastic cocktail recipes with various local spirits.  They really enjoy our Watershed Gin, and have featured it four times int he recent past.  I am grateful too that they have graciously allowed me to cross post their beautiful photos and cocktail recipes here for you so share.  Find them on Instagram at www.instagram.com/drinktonight.

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.

2 strawberries
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.
