Strawberry Basil Mojito

All you need is white rum, like Bacardi, strawberries, basil leaves, lime juice, simple syrup, and ginger ale.  Start by muddling a few basil leaves, some strawberries, and a splash of ginger ale together.  Then combine a splash of lime juice, a 1/4 part simple syrup, and 1-1/2 part of white rum with ice, and vigorously shake until it feels chilly.  Serve immediately for a light, fresh way to stay cool in this humid summer heat.
