This delicious and refreshing white wine spritzer adds strawberries and basil for a fun spin on a summer classic.
Place 1 cup of strawberries, 1/2 cup sugar and water into a small sauce pan.
Heat on medium until simmering, simmer for 5 minutes then set aside to cool.
Once cooled, strain out strawberry pieces. Syrup is now ready to use.
Muddle basil and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Crush basil just enough to release the aromatic qualities. Allow the basil to infuse the lime juice for a few minutes.
Strain the lime juice from the basil leaves into a white wine glass, add 1 tablespoon of strawberry syrup.
Pour 4 oz of Sauvignon blanc into the white wine glass.
Add 3 oz of soda water to the drink.
Garnish if desired with fresh strawberries or basil. Enjoy.
