cheers to mothers from women & whiskies + a giveaway / sfgirlbybay

mother’s day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate moms but with a toast to all they do!? mothers work harder than anybody and darnit, they deserve a cocktail — a pretty and tasty one! the lovely ladies at women & whiskies invited me to share with you one very refreshing cocktail to celebrate moms everywhere — the strawberry basil smash, made with wild turkey 101 or Russell’s Reserve Bourbon, and a delicious muddled mix of fresh strawberries, basil, lemon and a dash of real maple syrup. we, of course, had to taste this cocktail while photographing it, and let me assure you — it is mighty good! and super easy to mix up — i’ve shared the recipe just below, and you can find it on the women & whiskies website, along with lots of other refreshing cocktail recipes. plus, we have one amazing mother’s day giveaway from williams-sonoma home and love & victory!
