1 bag (10 ounce) frozen organic strawberries, thawed
1 cup light honey
8–10 fresh basil leaves, torn
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 fresh lemon, juiced and zested
1 bottle dry white wine
1 bottle sparkling Prosecco wine
Fresh strawberries and fresh lemon slices to garnish
1. In a bowl or large jar add thawed strawberries, honey, basil, vanilla, and juice and zest from one lemon; mash or macerate mixture well—you can use a muddler, vegetable masher, or the handle of a wooden spoon, just really mash it up. Cover mixture and refrigerate for 24–48 hours to allow flavors to meld. When mixture is ready, strain using a mesh strainer, making sure to stir mixture to ensure all the syrup drains out. Put in a sealed container and refrigerate. Syrup should keep for up to 2 weeks in fridge.
2. Pour about 2 tablespoons of syrup into a fancy glass. Top with an inch or two of dry wine and stir well. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with strawberry or thin lemon slice. This syrup also works great mixed with sparking water for a natural twist on soda!
