Easy Strawberry Basil Cocktail Recipe

Summer is over but that doesn't mean we have to give up our favorite foods and beverages from the season. After all, if you love it...you should enjoy it all year long. During this time of the year I'm seeing a lot of pumpkin flavored this or pumpkin flavored that. While I enjoy some pumpkin flavored beverages...I have to admit...I'm all about those summer fruity flavors. I think this cocktail recipe would be perfect to serve at holiday parties too!

Our guest post recipe today is courtesy of Polaner. Polaner Fruit & Maple has applications beyond breakfast and can be used to create desserts, appetizers, dressings, cocktails, glazes and more. Recipes can be found on the company's Facebook page.
