You'll need 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup fresh basil leaves
Make the basil simple syrup by bringing the sugar and the water to a boil over low heat, stirring regularly. Once the sugar is completely combined, add the basil leaves, and allow to cool completely.
Combine the riesling, basil simple syrup (with leaves removed for a clearer color), strawberries, and rum. Refrigerate about 8 hours before serving.
