Strawberry Basil Bellini

Jump To Recipe

Happy Friday everyone!  I’m sending you this fantastic little Strawberry Basil Bellini cocktail from Nashville, TN!  I’m up here celebrating my birthday weekend with my sister and my dear friend, Brooke, who you all know as kristen brooke (@kbstyled on instagram) from her fabulous fashion posts here on Carolina Girl Cooks.  Not only is it a fun party weekend, I’m also in town collecting info and making notes on food to recreate when I go back home, so definitely stay tuned for some travel inspired dishes to come.  We had a FANTASTIC meal last night at a spot called Lockeland Table in East, Nashville.  Holy smokes, was it good.  To check out some of the dishes and drinks we got into, head over to my instagram page @scgirlcooks.  If you’re in Nashville any time soon, be sure to check them out and order everything!  You’ll be so happy you did.

Getting back to today’s post, in honor of my birthday, the month of May and a fun girl’s weekend, I give you this yummy little Strawberry Basil Bellini cocktail that is the drink form answer for the rising temps of Spring.  Plump, sweet, juicy local strawberries come together with the licorice flavor of basil to create a wonderfully unique mixture to stir into bubbly Prosecco.  The perfect drink morning, noon or night.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
