In honor of Ms. Irene, I created a quick cocktail drink. Hopefully this will appease her wrath as the hurricane is making its way up to New York. I made sure the drink is strong enough (probably a category 3 by my standards) and adding coconut water and lime juice make this a bit more tropical. Enjoy as one of the last summer cocktails of the year. Cheers!
Tropical Hurricane Irene Cocktail Recipe
Roughly chop strawberries and place in a tall glass with a teaspoon of sugar. Muddle the strawberries and sugar until well mixed together. Add basil leaves, rum, vodka and lime juice. Let sit for about 5 minutes for flavors to infuse. Add crushed ice, then top with coconut water. Mix well and enjoy!
