This crisp and fresh Strawberry Basil Vodka Cocktail will be the perfect drink to sit back and relax on a hot summer day.
One of my favorite things about summer is that it stays lighter so much longer. We can hang out with our friends and family until almost 10pm before even realizing how late it is. When we have guests over, I usually make a large batch of these Strawberry Basil Vodka Cocktails, and they are always a hit. Absolut Vodka is always my key ingredient.
Absolut has no artificial ingredients. Their new Americana bottle is perfect for summer get togethers and for Labor Day, 4th of July, and of course my birthday! Not only does Absolute make great summer cocktails, but the bottle serves as decor as well!
Besides these Strawberry Basil Vodka Cocktails, I love making John Dalys (Absolut Vodka spiked half iced tea and half lemonade) and vodka-infused sodas.
This summer, Absolut is bringing communities together to “Party with a Purpose” by donating $100,000 to Keep America Beautiful to help end littering, improve recycling and beautify communities.
