Cocktail: Strawberry Hard Apple Cider Cooler

When I started thinking about this post it was my intension to post a cocktail that was light, cool, and refreshing, and perfect for those warm spring days.  And, it is that however, I have no idea where my warm spring days went as I sit here in my jacket in the 50 degree weather! Nevertheless I want to share this cocktail recipe for a Strawberry Hard Apple Cider Cooler that is spring time in a glass!

For my strawberry hard apple cider cooler I used The Good Cider that I found at my local H-E-B.  I love how it tastes and so does my husband.  To me it is a bit less sweet than other ciders I have had.  With this cider as the star adding muddled strawberries, basil, and lime boosted the cider into all out refreshing mode!

The more cocktails I create I am noticing that a general rule of thumb is to base your add-ins on the season and you generally can’t go wrong.  Strawberry season is here and it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the freshness of the season!
