Got another goodie for ya!
We had posted this to our Facebook in November, but had never gotten it onto the website, so here it is! Sorry for that, but we promise this is the only one that was on Facebook and not here, so today’s post is like playing catch up. =p
Tequila, I don’t even know ya!
4-5 Basil leaves (depending on size)
1 oz. Strawberry Simple
1.5 oz. Anejo Tequila
0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
0.75 oz. Agave
Muddle the Basil, Simple, Lemon, and Agave in a shaker
Add ice and tequila
Shake and strain into rocks glass
Soda water to fill
Garnish with fresh basil sprig
Review: The muddled mixture with the soda water is very refreshing and reminiscent of a homemade soda, and I personally feel that the Anejo I used is a very good quality, so the tequila flavor came through just enough that I didn’t lose any of the other ingredients. It was a nice little pick-me-up. Definitely will be making this more often.
