Oh, my. What do we have here? Spring in a glass? Nearly. It's the easy to make and even easier to drink Basil Lime Lillet. Bright and smooth, savory with just a hint of sweet, this little doozy is perfect for the ladies and tough enough for the gents.
Basil Lime Lillet
In a shaker, muddle 10 basil leaves with juice from half a lime
Add 3 ounces of Lillet
Strain over ice
Add a dash of simple syrup
Fill to the top with sparkling water
Stir and garnish with basil and lime
If you're feeling frisky, use 2 ounces of Lillet and add a shot of gin.
Now you're cooking with gas, Hazel!
