Kona Grill’s Secret Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe
It’s horrifyingly hot this summer in Phoenix … well, that is true of every summer in Phoenix 🤣! But, no need to sweat the number on the thermometer when you can cool off with a refreshing drink! We got the kid-friendly, super-secret Strawberry Basil Lemonade cocktail recipe from the Kona Grill! I had a blast mixing cocktails with Dustin who is also a fellow camper and hiker! Check out his camping and cocktail mixing tips in the video! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

If you are making the Kona Grill’s Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe at the campsite, why not do it in style with a camping themed cocktail shaker? We love our stainless steel martini shaker for all kinds of drinks and with a message: “Camp, Hike, Cook, Drink, Eat, Repeat” it sure does put us in the mood to camp on! The shaker and muddler really are my favorite outdoor bar accessories!
Consider your options. This Bamboo Bash Cooler Glass Set is certainly a nice tall glass but it is actually a glass material. So, if you don’t mind camping with breakables, this fits the bill for this Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe.
If you prefer to camp with non-breakable materials, you may want to use a Break-Resistant Plastic Tumbler as an option for this Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe. Whichever option you choose, I recommend that it is clear because this drink is way to pretty not to see!
Dustin’s Camping/Hiking Tip
Not only did Dustin spill the beans on the secret Kona Grill Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe, he shared a camping-hiking tip too. He learned this tip the hard way. On his trip to the Grand Canyon, Dustin only took one pair of shoes which he didn’t wear before his adventure. The soles fell off! He had to borrow another pair from a Boy Scout group that was in the area. Lucky for Dustin … the Boy Scouts are ALWAYS prepared! The moral of the story: You never go hiking with brand new shoes and only one pair! I recommend buying a good quality set of hiking boots too!
Dustin’s favorite place to go?
Dustin loves Havasupai Falls (Havasu Falls)—Grand Canyon. It’s great because it has natural waterfalls, camping areas and hotels; he also enjoyed the 8-mile scenic hike. Dustin did admit that “roughin’ it” around the Grand Canyon happens on a “7 Wonder of the World type of level” which isn’t really all that rough but it sure is stunning!
