Happy Hour: Strawberry Basil Margarita…

I know it sounds weird. This is my first attempt at creating my own cocktail and I must admit, it wasn’t half bad. It basically came about because Harris Teeter had a sale for buy one get one on strawberries this week and because I bought basil for one purpose and thought I’d like to use it before it went bad. I was inspired by an article in this month’s Food Network Magazine about homemade ice pops. They had all these interesting combinations and I thought it would work for cocktails too. Plus I thought strawberry basil margarita’s seemed a bit classier than just a regular margarita.

Do you have a nontraditional margarita recipe?

Happy Friday!
