With Spring and Easter floating around, we wanted to give our Dove Olive Oil lovers another balsamic vinegar recipe. Sure, we could tell you how to make another salad dressing, but we didn't think that would make the cut for being creative.
After giving it some thought and reminiscing on the hot chocolate and cocktails we have previously posted about, we thought we would stick with the drink theme. We wanted to shift our thinking just a bit. You don't exactly think of hot chocolate for the spring time and cocktails served at your Easter dinner.. Probably shouldn't..
In light of this time of year, we are bringing you Dove's Strawberry Basil Spring Fizz. This is a light, refreshing drink that is perfect for brunches, get togethers, sitting on a patio on a Sunday afternoon, or picnics. This sweet-tart, yet fizzy drink will quench your thirst while sending your tastebuds for a shindig of their own.
Mash in the bottom of a glass with a muddler or wooden spoon:
- Two 1/2" lime wedges
- 2 basil leaves
- 1 fresh hulled strawberry
- 1 Tbsp. Simple Syrup
- 1/2 tsp. Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar
- A few ice cubes
- Seltzer or club soda.
