Basil & Ginger Margarita

 

I don’t know what it is but I never really liked basil in a cocktail. It’s ok with Italian food, but I don’t think I particularly like this herb that much that I want to drink it.

 

Still, when I came along this recipe for the basil & ginger margarita with gin I just had to test it out. The combination sounded just too interesting to ignore.

So I was amazed, that this drink turned out to be really delicious and I love the fresh summer look it has. The perfect addition to my super cute drinking glasses with gold stars, don’t you think so too?

 

It must be the ginger that perfectly balances the basil out, but the two of them work very well together. Also, the Gin is a great addition to this drink and gives it the extra something.
