The sweet and herby mixture of strawberries, pineapple, and basil with a hit of fiery sweetness from ginger beer make this mocktail from Orchids + Sweet Tea an instant winner.
What you need:
2 cups strawberries, stems removed and sliced
¼ cup basil leaves
1 cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons agave nectar
1 bottle ginger beer, for topping
Fresh basil leaves
What you do:
- In a bowl, add strawberries, basil, and pineapple juice, muddling until strawberries are fully broken down and basil is lightly crushed. Add agave and stir until well combined.
- Add crushed ice to two glasses. Add 3 tablespoons of muddled strawberries to bottom of each glass. Through a strainer, pour in ⅓ cup of strawberry-pineapple mixture to each glass, and top with ginger beer until glasses are ¾ filled. For additional garnish, add sliced strawberries, and basil leaves.
