A refreshing mix of tonic water, lime, basil, and blackberries to kick off a relaxing weekend!
I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, just like these lovely and refreshing drinks! I bought a potted basil the other day that has grown like a weed in the past week due to TONS of rain and an equal amount of sunshine 🙂 I only harvested half of the plant yesterday and got 15 leaves, so you can count on there being a fair amount of basil related posts in the near future!
It was either a crazy blackberry, mozzarella, and basil flatbread coming your way today or this spritzer, and well, today just felt like a spritzer kind of day! Next week you just might see that flatbread though 🙂
Have an amazing weekend, kick back, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and sip on this beauty!
