Caprese Cocktail

Trying to recreate all the great tastes of a caprese salad into a cocktail seemed like a no brainer to me.  Next time I think I’ll add more basil (you add as much as you like) and I forgot to add the olives on the skewers, DUH, but all in all I think it was a winner and one we’ll serve again. 

Cheers we go again!!!
