Caprese Cocktail Recipe

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!!!
