Of course, for this Southern Soul, it starts with bourbon…
- 1 ½ oz Bourbon whiskey ~ Blanton’s is the favorite here
- ½-1 cup strawberries – halved
- 6-8 basil leaves , torn, plus for garnish
- Sparkling water
- Place the strawberries and basil in the bottom of a large glass.
- Muddle with a large spoon and top with the whiskey.
- Stir to combine and fill the glass with ice cubes.
- Top with sparkling water then garnish with basil leaves.
