Description

| Featuring fresh, homemade, seasonal recipes for food and cocktails.

Simple syrup is a combination of sugar and water that has been heated enough for the sugar to melt and then chilled before using.If you are going to start making your own cocktails, I advise making a batch to keep on hand. One half cup sugar and one half cup water until water boils and you can no longer see the sugar crystals; then cool and keep in fridge. It keeps a long time and is easier than making a small amount each time you craft a cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz Blanco Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 3 Basil Leaves
  • Sugar/salt combination for the rim
  • Lemon slice
  • Basil leaf

Directions

  • Rim the glass with a combination of sugar and salt or if using the Fresh Origins botanicals a combination of half sugar/salt mixture and half botanicals.
  • Tear the basil and combine it in a shaker with the rest of the ingredients. Add ice; shake well and then pour into an ice filled rocks glass over a strainer. Garnish with basil and a lemon wheel.
