Red Carpet Courage Cocktail
Fruit and vodka in a glass never steered you wrong
From time to time, I like to use my craft in outrageous ways — like the time I mixed 1,003 cocktails in 1 hour to earn the Guinness Book of World Record's "Fastest Bartender" title. Another idea that I've been secretly dreaming up is plans to be the first person to run a full-service curbside bar on an award show red carpet. If it ever happens, I’d definitely serve this cocktail to the celebrity guests. It's simple, refreshing, fruity, herbaceous, and boasts a generous 2-ounce vodka pour per glass.
The Red Carpet Courage cocktail is exactly what nervous award-goers need before facing the flashing lights. Plus, I can't help but think that I'd make out pretty well in cash tips with this VIP clientele.
- Muddle strawberries and basil together in a shaker.
- Combine additional ingredients, shake vigorously and strain ingredients into a highball glass filled with ice.
- Garnish with a basil sprig.
