Strawberry Basil Cocktail with the Mehu-Liisa Steam Juicer from Finland

I made strawberry juice the other day with my Mehu-Liisa steam juicer from Finland and decided to shake up a strawberry-basil cocktail. Below is a how-to video followed by ingredients and instructions:


2 oz strawberry juice from the Mehu-Liisa steam juicer

2 oz gin or vodka

1 oz lemon juice

1 oz of Vermouth

1/2 to 1 oz simple syrup

4 large basil leaves

(dash of Angostura Bitters)


1. fill a shaker half full of ice cubes

2. add 3 of the basil leaves and muddle till well bruised

3. add remaining ingredients and shake gently for 15 seconds

4. strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a strawberry, lemon zest, and basil leaf


Take care,
