Strawberry Gin Smash
This drink is so refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day. Mint and strawberries go so well together. I also love strawberry and basil but that will come in another upcoming cocktail I am sure! Mint is great on hot days because it has natural cooling properties.
This cocktail is served with some soda water but I used some strawberry bubly to keep with the strawberry theme, but lime bubly would also be nice to tie in with the lime juice. There are so many great soda water flavours out there and they can make nice additions to summer cocktails without increasing the sugar content.
I like to really muddle the strawberries to get all the juice and flavour into my cup. Use more or less depending on your preference.
