Here’s a cocktail to kick off the 4th of July! Chris made this refreshing drink to keep us cool. Cheers everyone!
So as Anne mentioned in her previous post, it’s been pretty warm here lately. Not triple digits warm, but warm enough that a cold beverage sounded really good. We had some leftover basil and lemons, so I decided to make a lemon and basil daiquiri. I love the classic recipe, shaken with ice, but today demanded an adult slushie. It rendered enough for probably four servings, although we finished it off ourselves. ;-)
- 4 ounces of light rum
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
- 15-20 basil leaves
- 6 tablespoons of ultra-fine sugar
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
Pour into glass, garnish with basil leaf.
