Spring nights call for a special cocktail, such as this fragrant and fruity strawberry mule. The scent and flavour of fresh basil give it a real pop, while lime adds tanginess and the ginger beer a pungent and spicy fizziness.
Gently muddle the basil leaves in the base of a highball glass.
Add the strawberry purée, vodka, lime juice, sugar syrup and plenty of ice.
Stir well, then top up with ginger beer and garnish with a sprig of basil.
