This was born of a need to use up the ageing strawberries in the fridge, plus whatever was growing in the garden.  Found a recipe at and adapted it in the laziest possible manner.

Delightfully refreshing, the lemon, sugar, strawberry and basil all work together well, especially when well-chilled after shaking.


  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 strawberries
  • handful of basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • soda water
  • ice cubes


  • Muddle the strawberries, basil, and sugar at the bottom of your shaker.
  • Add lemon juice and ice and shake until chilled.
  • Half-fill glasses with ice
  • Strain into glass
  • Garnish with a slice of strawberry and basil leaf


Mocktails in the tiny are always romantic 🙂
