If you like a sweet, fruity cocktail, this martini made with D'Olivo Strawberry Dark Balsamic is perfect. You can switch up the flavor by trying different berries and balsamics, like D'Olivo Blueberry Dark Balsamic or D'Olivo Raspberry Dark Balsamic.
STRAWBERRY BASIL MARTINI
2 Strawberries, or more to taste
2 Basil Leaves, or more to taste
1/2 oz agave nectar
2 oz of your favorite vodka or gin

Cut stems off strawberries. Place the strawberries, basil, and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker and mash well with a muddler. Add ice, vodka, lime juice, and 1/4 oz D’Olivo Strawberry Dark Balsamic. Cover and shake cocktail until the outside of the shaker has frosted.
Swirl remaining 1/4 oz of D’Olivo Strawberry Dark Balsamic around the inside of a martini glass. Strain cocktail into the glass. If desired, garnish with a strawberry and a small sprig of basil. Enjoy!
