It's the weekend and I wanted a fruity cocktail to enjoy on this HOT summer day (Georgia-heat is something else!). Anyway, I found this recipe that I am about to try.
It's low carb & "sugar free"!
Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!
1 wedge of lemon
1 tsp low carb sweetener
2 fresh strawberries, sliced
½ lemon, sliced and quartered
4 fresh basil leaves
2 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs sugar free sweetening syrup
3 tbs vodka
extra strawberry, slice of lemon, thin strips of basil, for garnish
Prepared the glass by running a wedge of lemon around the rim, then dipping it in low carb sweetener that has been placed on a small plate.
Make the base of the drink by adding the sliced strawberries, lemon slices, fresh basil leaves, lemon juice and sweetening syrup to a cocktail shaker, then using a muddler to crush everything down.
Add the vodka and some ice cubes, and give everything a good shake. Strain it into the glass, and garnish it before serving.
