Basil Lemonade

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz Arrogante Blanco Tequila
  • 2 or 3 Leaves of Fresh Basil
  • 0.5 oz Agave Nectar
  • 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 to 3 oz Chilled Club Soda
  • Garnish: 2 Thin Slices of Lemon and a Basil Leaf
  • PREPARATION:

    In a Boston shaker, lightly muddle basil leaves. You'd want to release the flavors but not to destroy the leaves.

    Add Arrogante Blanco tequila, agave nectar and freshly squeezed juice of lemon. Stir well. Top the shaker off with a handful of ice cubes and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds until the cocktail is well chilled.

    Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the drink into a chilled cocktail glass. Drop in the glass two thin slices of lemon and garnish with a basil leaf. Serve with a straw.

This delicious twist on the tequila-based lemonade gets its clean green notes and fragrant aroma from the fresh basil leaves. Basil's complex sweet and spicy flavors with delicate notes of clove and anise are the perfect match to freshly squeezed lemon juice and, of course, tequila!
