7 Tasty Fruit Cocktails

  • 2 of 7

2. Fruity Basils

I adapted this recipe from an article that I wrote over on Planet Green for a Berry Basil which was made with blueberries, and made it at a recent dinner party to rave reviews.

You can use any available berry — blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc. I used watermelon because they are still widely available where I am down south. These are a bit time-intensive so you may want to make a few batches ahead of time and then just add the ice and rum later.

Fruity Basils
8 basil leaves
4 mint leaves
1 tsp raw sugar
1 tbsp lime juice
cup chopped watermelon
1 1/2 oz rum
Garnish with basil

Method
1. Muddle basil, mint, sugar, and lime juice in the base of a shaker glass. If it’s still too thick, blend it in a blender.

2. Add watermelon and continue to muddle. Add rum and ice and shake. Fill medium height glass with ice and add muddled rum mixture into the glass. Garnish with more mint.

Serves 1

I love cocktails ... sitting on a warm summer evening in a bar with a mojito is great.
