Sparkling Strawberry Lime Whiskey Smash



Yield 2 drinks



  1. Chuck the strawberries in a blender or food processor. Puree for 30 seconds. If desired, strain to remove seeds (I didn't bother).
  2. Grab the limes as that works and roll them on the counter with the heel of your hand. This will help the juices release when you're ready.
  3. Divide and chuck the basil, salt caramel syrup, lime juice and bourbon into 2 tall, wide mouthed glasses - or mason jars - and muddle lightly with a wooden spoon.
  4. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the strawberry puree and leave about an inch of headroom at the top of the glass. Top up with soda water. Stir.
  5. Garnish with a fresh sprig of basil and a sliced strawberry.
  6. Drink your pretty little face off.
