RECIPE

Strawberry Lemon Basil Margarita

My friend and I met for drinks one day. While we there we met a guy named Blake and he was telling us about his company called B3 Roots. I was wowed by his produce. He gave me some lemon basil out. It was delicious. it was seriously the best lemon basil I ever tasted. I couldn’t wait to make a margarita with it. This margarita was delicious and so refreshing!! Perfect for a summer weekend.

I like to cut the strawberries in half, so when I smash them, more of the strawberry juice comes out when you smash them. And when you mash them with them basil the flavor is amazing!!
