Basil Cucumber Smash and Straw Envy Review

National Gin Day was June 14, and in honor of the date, the folks over at Straw Envy sent over a cool drink for my readers and I to try.  And they also sent me a sample of their lovely, fun, and festive straws!  If you’re a food photographer or blogger, or someone who just loves hosting, you know that nothing dresses up a drink like a colorful straw or other garnishes.

I received samples of their Hot Pink Straws.  These are so cute!  As you can see they are shiny and shimmery, and they come in a really cute case.  Can’t you just see these in a strawberry daiuiri or a pink lemonade?

I, for one, can’t wait to use them in my next drink photo shoot!  I think I’ll have to post a new punch or smoothie recipe, so I’ll have an excuse to show off the straws!

On the Straw Envy website, you can find more of their products, as well as several great cocktail recipes.  Today I am sharing their Basil Cucumber Smash! Enjoy!
