It’s been warm here in Portland these last few days, and it’s projected to continue. It's just what we need out east in the vineyard, helping those little vines catch up to the slow start they, and most others out here in the West, have endured. And while they do, as the heat leaves us looking for cool and sweating out whether or not our grapes will ripen in time, may I suggest a drink I have concocted: Basil-Strawberry Rum-Ade. For more "how to" imagery, please visit our blog, The Uncultivated LIfe. And please do let us know what you think!

Directions

Muddle the strawberries and basil leaf in the lemon juice.

Add the triple sec, then fill the glass with ice.

Top off with rum — as much as you’d like — and stir to mix.
