Makes 1 pitcher, or about 8 servings
1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
8 basil leaves
2 to 2 1/2 cups tequila (gold or silver)
Empty the limeade concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 1/2 cans of water and 2 1/4 cups of tequila (or a bit less, if you don't want your drinks to be quite as strong).
Slice your strawberries lengthwise and add to the pitcher. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavor release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.
When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, your margaritas will be a lovely shade of pale pink. Serve it up and enjoy this refreshing drink. Feel free to add sugar to the rim of each glass for a sweeter taste.
