Ever taste something, or smell something, that just instantly transports you to another time? I picked up some Japanese Ramune soda (strawberry flavor) the other day and the first sip was like stepping back into some long forgotten childhood memory. The hazy, hot days of a summer spent running through sprinklers, catching frogs, going to my brother’s little league practices, and guzzling those brightly colored little juice drinks that come in chintzy, barrel-shaped plastic bottles. Those blissful, carefree summertime vibes were the inspiration for this strawberry & passionfruit cocktail, featuring tequila, strawberry-infused Lillet, and Ramune soda.
- 1.5 oz tequila blanco
- .75 oz strawberry-infused Lillet Blanc
- .50 oz passionfruit juice
- .25 oz lime juice
- 3 basil leaves
- Strawberry Ramune soda
Add all but the final ingredient to a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Strain and top with Ramune soda. Garnish with passionfruit and basil.
