Strawberry Basil Daiquiris. As summer leaves us, I thought it was only fitting to go out with one of the most summery cocktails I could possibly think of: the daiquiri.
I made these last week when it was gloomy and rainy in New York City, so I figured that these Strawberry Basil Daiquiris would help cheer Kramer and me right up.
