  1. Divide the strawberries and basil between 2 large rocks glasses. Season with a pinch of salt. Using a cocktail muddler, macerate the strawberries and basil together until the strawberries are smashed and the basil has broken up. Add 1 1/2 ounces mezcal and 1/2 teaspoon agave into each glass. Fill each glass with two ice cubes, then cover with club soda. Use a cocktail stirrer to mix.
