Strawberry Basil Infused Rum Recipe

This infusion always reminds me of early summer, eating ripe strawberries and sitting on the deck. The basil adds a nice hint of spice to the infusion. This rum goes great in mojitos and rum punch but I really like it in a fizz to cool me off on a warm summer day.
