What better way to greet the summer heat than a refreshingly sweet cocktail? This season, we’re in love with this sweet and summery Strawberry-Basil Moscow Mule. Just add strawberry and lime for sweetness, mix in ginger beer to keep it oh so fresh and vodka to keep the party going. Whip up one or two for you and a friend or a big batch for a picnic or pool party. Here’s how…
