I just love using seasonal fruit in cocktails. The blueberries are super good right now.
Who knew blueberries and basil would go so well together.
Add a little fizz in there and really got something.
What you need,
8 basil leaves
4 mint leaves
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. lime juice
2 heaping tbsp. fresh blueberries
1 oz. white rum
Blueberries for garnish
In a cocktail shaker muddle together the basil, mint, sugar, lime juice and blueberries. Add the rum and 4-5 ice cubes.
Shake 10-12 times until chilled.
Fill a glass with ice and strain the mixture over the ice. Top with soda water. Garnish with more fresh blueberries.
I have really enjoyed all the amazing summer cocktails I have gotten to try since May. I only have 2 left to go… any best by requests??
Happy Friday everyone, Have a great weekend‼
