Need a refreshing poolside drink without all the added sugar or calories?

All you need is some fresh strawberries, lemon juice and a few basil leaves to take your water up a notch and cool off during the hot summer months! This can also be a “mocktail” just omit the vodka.

Vodka water with some citrus is my go to drink! I had so much fun making this drink whie vacationing in Arizona with some girlfriends. It’s a light refreshing cocktail meant to be enjoyed. If you haven’t ever used edible flowers, you should! The colors are so bright and beautiful, it makes any food or drink exciting.
