Servings: 12 servings



  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • zest of one orange peeled in wide strips
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries hulled and roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups lime juice from 10-15 limes
  • 750 ml Silver Tequila and/or Canada Dry Ginger Ale (ratio dependent on how boozy you want your drink)


  • Add honey and orange peel to a bowl. Boil water and add to honey; stir to dissolve and allow flavors from orange peel to come out. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Macerate strawberries with basil by smashing them together in a bowl.
  • In a large pitcher, combine cooled honey mixture with the orange peel with the strawberries, basil, and lime juice. Add tequila and/or ginger ale. I enjoyed this drink with just the tequila, just the ginger ale, and then a combination of both and all three variations were delicious, so the amount you add depends 100% on how boozy you want your drink.
  • Serve over ice.
