Ingredients (1 serving)

2 oz. tequila (we love Patrón Silver)

1 oz. lime juice

4 basil leaves

Ice cubes

Salt to rim your glass

Lime wedges to garnish


Combine tequila, lime juice, and 3 basil leaves with ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Shake aggressively so as to break up the ice and release the basil flavor from the leaves. Strain into a fresh glass with ice and rimmed with salt. Garnish with lime wedge and remaining basil leaf. Cheers!
