How to Sip Our Cocktail of the Month in Spring Style

March 19, 2015

Strawberry Marg

We’re marking the first day of spring by launching our Cocktail of the Month series, because the season of fresh starts calls for celebrating with fresh sips.

While researching the best in quintessential spring cocktails, we stumbled across a pitcher-perfect Strawberry Basil Margarita recipe, courtesy of the culinary pros at The Kitchn.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Can (12 oz.) Frozen Limeade Concentrate
  • 10 Strawberries
  • 8 Basil Leaves
  • 2 to 2.5 Cups Tequila (Gold or Silver)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Empty Limeade Concentrate can into pitcher
  • Add 2.5 cans of water and 1.5 (18 oz. or 2.25 cups) cans of Tequila
  • Hull Strawberries, slice lengthwise and add to pitcher
  • Crumple Basil Leaves gently in your hands to help release their flavor and add to pitcher
  • Cover pitcher and place in your refrigerator overnight or at least for four hours

In addition to quenching a thirst for spring flavors, this cool, colorful concoction packs instant inspiration for spring settings – you’ll want a place to get your drink on, after all. Fortunately, our recipe for creating a seasonal space is just as easy to master as the margaritas, and it only takes four ingredients, too: a spot to sip drinks, a spot to serve drinks, plus festive lighting and accessories.

SEATING

Cocktail of the Month Seating Collection

Whether entertaining in your kitchen, living or dining room, whether you’re more comfortable at the table, counter or bar, choose stools, chairs, benches and ottomans that feature natural materials, bright hues or playful forms.

SERVING

Bar carts and pub tables elevate ordinary evenings to special occasions, and considering that the sun’s up late this season, you should be too…with a few friends and a few ready-to-drink pitchers.

LIGHTING

The quickest way to appropriate ambiance is the right lighting, so opt for a radiant pendant, rattan candleholders or a table lamp that displays your favorite seasonal fillers in its base.

ACCESSORIZING

We can’t get enough of color, especially during springtime, and sipping a Strawberry Basil Margarita on a warm day may have you craving a pastel palette of pinks, greens and yellows.
