A refreshing fruit-laced summer cocktail, this drink gets beautiful color and distinctive flavor from the muddled strawberries and bits of sweet basil.

- 1-1/2 parts ginger beer
- 1-3/4 parts lemon juice
- 1 large strawberry (or 3 small)
- 4 basil leaves
- 1 dash Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters
Muddle strawberries and basil well. Add rhubarb bitters, lemon juice and Maker's Mark® Bourbon. Add ice and shake. Strain over ice in a highball glass. Add ginger beer and stir lightly. Garnish with a slice of strawberry.
