Virgin Strawberry Basil Margarita Drink Recipe - a great way to bring summer flavors together in a delicious drink #SweetNLowStars

While summer is slowly coming to an end – omgosh! My kid is going to kindergarten in 4 weeks! – I want to enjoy all I can out of the fresh and flavorful summer flavors I love. And since I’m pregnant (did you catch my announcement?) I’ve been experimenting with a few virgin varieties of my favorite summertime drinks.

This weekend I decided to make some virgin margaritas. It’s the one thing I’ve been craving since finding out I was pregnant and I just couldn’t let it be. I went with the classic flavors at first but then I decided to use up some of the produce we had and made this delicious virgin strawberry basil margarita. 

Virgin Strawberry Basil Margaritas ingredients #SweetNLowStars

With a handful of strawberries, some limes, and a bunch of basil I found my blender in a box somewhere (yeah… we still haven’t finished unpacking) and got to creating.

Since we were fresh out of agave from my previous margarita making adventure I grabbed a few packets of Sweet’N Low and started mixing.

With all of the ingredients in the blender there was just one more thing to do… mix it up! Of course as soon as the kids heard the blender going they had to come find out what I was making. Good thing I didn’t add the tequila!

The kids were all over the second margarita as soon as I poured it. Guess they thought mommy’s drink was fair game. Looks like I’ll be making more of these in the near future. I’m thinking a mango margarita might be next…

And after baby comes – bring on the tequila! Who’s with me?

What favorite summertime flavors will you miss?

  1. This looks so good! What a creative use of the flavors too. I would have never thought to add basil but now that I think about it, it sounds amazing. Kinda gives it that extra flavor since you can’t have the tequila.

  2. I would have never thought to try basil, but what a delicious addition! I can’t wait to try this. (though I might have to sneak in a bit of tequila)

  3. Strawberries and basil. What a great combination!

  4. I have never tried Strawberry & Basil – yum!!
