- 1 1/2 cups of washed and halved ripe strawberries
- 12 basil leaves
- 4 tablespoons of simple syrup
- Sparkling water as needed
- 2 lemon wedges
- 1/4 cup of sugar for the rim
Spread the sugar in a small coffee cup plate.
Rub the rim of 4 tall cocktail glasses with the slice of lemon, then dip in the sugar to coat the rim lightly.
Divide the strawberries and basil into 4 equal parts in each glass. Muddle the strawberries and basil well. Add 1 tablespoon of the simple syrup to each glass. Top with sparkling water, leaving room for some ice cubes. Stir, then add the ice cubes and decorate with a whole strawberry.
