These Strawberry Basil Mojitos are the perfect summer drink. Cool and citrusy with a kiss of fresh herbs and the sweetness of rum. A glass filled with ice and goodness.

Since I'm not a drinker, I decided to put a fresh, alcohol-free twist on the classic Mojito recipe. But you can make it with alcohol if you're not a teetotaler. I've included details on how to do this below. Mixing up a glass of these incredible drinks is as easy as can be. Just follow these basic steps and you'll have a cool, classy glass of Strawberry-Basil Mojito made fresh in your kitchen in no time at all!

Make a simple strawberry syrup. Drizzle a good portion of the syrup into the bottom of a large glass.
