2 oz Bourbon
1 oz Homemade strawberry basil syrup

Shake ingredients in shaker for 15 seconds, add ice and shake for an additional 15 seconds. pour into glass through sieve and serve up with a strawberry garnish.
Strawberry Basil Syrup
6 large strawberries
15 basil leaves
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
bring half of the water, sugar and basil to a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer. puree strawberries in blender with other half of the water. add to the remaining mixture. simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. strain twice to remove solids.
NOTES: definitely my favorite so far. not the most complex, but it was really damn tasty.
