Mixology Monday: Basil Blush Cocktail
Summer is just around the corner which means rosé wines will start popping up on menus all over the place. Personally, I drink rosé wine no matter what time of the year, but it's typically reserved for warmer weather. In preparation for upcoming warm days and nights, here's a fun little cocktail to keep in mind for yourself or for entertaining.
You will need:
2-3 fresh basil leaves
1 lemon wedge
1 oz. citrus vodka
5 oz. rosé wine
Simple syrup to taste
Muddle basil and lemon in a glass. Fill glass with ice then add wine and vodka. Use a swizzle stick to stir, adding the simple syrup as needed. For added flair, garnish with a lemon wedge or a basil leaf...or both!
