Sip and Listen

The dog days of summer are still upon us in Texas, so we will have to stick to refreshing cocktails for now. All I can think about is Fall, but I guess that will have to wait…



  • 2 Strawberries, hulled, plus 1 for garnish

  • 4 lemon wedges

  • 2 basil leaves, plus 1 for garnish

  • 1 ounce simple syrup

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka


In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2 of the strawberries with the lemon wedges, 2 of the basil leaves, and some simple syrup. Add the vodka. Top with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with remaining strawberry and basil leave.

Getting a little dark with the music this week, but there really is no better kind. Enjoy and make sure you listen all the way through, it's worth it.
