  • 3 shots vodka
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • Juice of 2 medium lemons
  • 6 basil leaves, divided
  • 4 ounces prosecco or sparkling wine


Serves: 2


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add vodka, jam, lemon juice and 4 torn basil leaves. Shake well and pour into 2 ice-filled glasses. Top with 2 ounces of prosecco and garnish each cocktail with a torn basil leaf.

Tip: "I made this cocktail with the 2 thick, chopped stems of basil I had left over after making pesto. It was a perfect use up of something I would have normally thrown away!"

Always drink responsibly.
