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
  • Ice cubes
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!
