Lemon and Basil Frozen Daiquiri

Here’s a cocktail to kick off the 4th of July! Chris made this refreshing drink to keep us cool.Β  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. πŸ˜‰

  1. I love it and I am the first one to post a comment. woo hoo! This is one awesome slushy andl ove the combination with the basil and lemon in both your cake and your cocktail. This is really fun and don’t forget to pull this one back out on St. Patty’s day. Take care, BAM

  2. Another reason why finally buying a blender was a great decision! It’s so hot and humid lately – I could really use an icy drink like that right now!

  3. Oh, I LOVE this lemon and basil combination in a drink. It looks so good and refreshing! Perfect to cool down on a hot day – just lovely! Thanks for sharing and happy 4th of July πŸ™‚

  4. I love this! I’m usually more a classic cocktail sort, but I do like playing with drinks, too. This really looks like a winner – definitely something I’ll try at some point. And so pretty! Good stuff – thanks.
