Strawberry Basil Cooler

   a drink in my hand and my toes in the sand

...Every day is one step closer to summer

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for sunshine and tan lines and I've got the cocktail to prove it. This spiked cooler is the perfect blend of fresh fruit, tangy lime, fresh basil and your favorite liquor.

T his drink is perfect for some front-porch sitting, some pool-side sun, or let's be real I'll drink it on my couch with Netflix and no pants.

Plus its super adorable and colorful. If you wanted to take it to the next level, you could quadruple it, use frozen strawberries, and give the whole thing a stir in a punchbowl with some floating lime slices.

You know...only if you're in charge of the fun part of the party. If you master that punch cooler, let me see on social so I can applaud you and give you a shout-out.
