Trying to get through all of these amazing summer recipes while I still have time! As the name suggests, a Strawberry Garden tastes like all the flavors of summer fruits and herbs in one refreshing cocktail. Unfortunately, strawberries are already past their prime, so I think this would have been better in June or July.
2 tsp. sugar
1½ oz Watershed Gin
½ oz lemon juice
Muddle the strawberry with basil and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add the gin, lemon juice and ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with club soda and garnish with sliced strawberries and basil.
