Tropical Hurricane Irene Cocktail with Coconut Water, infused with Basil and Strawberries

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!
