Strawberry Basil Lemonade Cocktail

Makes 1 drink

Dress up a grown-up strawberry lemonade by adding basil crystals. These crystals pack the perfect amount of sweetness and make for a lovely garnish when used as a rimming sugar. If you want to intensify the basil flavor, feel free to muddle a fresh basil leaf along with the other ingredients.
