"Basil anything is great - but this Margarita ia awesome! I've tried different types of basil, but my favorites in this recipe are the lemon basil and Thai. This would also be good as a frozen margarita."

Step 1

If desired, rim the glass with a combination of sugar and salt (50/50) by running a piece of lime over the rim and then dipping into the sugar/salt mix. Set aside.

Step 2

Tear the basil leaves and place in a shaker with the other ingredients. Muddle the leaves just a little bit to release the flavor.

Step 3

Add ice to the cocktail shaker and shake 30 seconds or until the shaker is frosty. Add ice to the prepared glass and strain the margarita into the glass. Garnish with a basil leaf and a slice of lemon or lime if desired.
