Strawberry Mint Cocktail

If you’re thinking of growing an herb this summer, make it mint! The drink options alone are worth the planter space. It’s amazing how a few sprigs of mint can totally transform a standard cocktail. It’s my latest obsession in my Summer of Mint series.

Vodka and 7s (or Sprites, or any other lemon-lime soda) are basic go-to’s for the home bar, but when you’re not feeling like a basic b’ – adding a hint of mint and strawberries will totally up your summer cocktail game, and it takes almost no extra effort!
