Do you know what is super fun? Walking out to your garden to pick strawberries for a snack. I've had some form or other of a garden my entire life, but last year decided to disperse our strawberry plants throughout our flower gardens to add some fun interest and also a groundcover to prevent weeds. The added bonus is that the strawberries have exploded and we have so many to snack on!
Now that the weather is a bit warmer I love to experiment with flavors of infused water and find that fruit mixed with herbs is a refreshing combination for warm days. Strawberry and basil is a bit of an unexpected combination but one that goes beyond the typical summer flavors.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Strawberries, 5-6 small or 2 large
Sprig of Basil
Cut the strawberries into chunks, I halved mine. Crush the basil and place in your glass, top with ice and sparkling water. Enjoy!
