Blueberry Basil Bourbon Smash
Marissa @ omgfood
fresh basil leaves
I used Greek basil, but sweet basil works perfectly too
juice from half a lemon
lemon twist for garnish
Add basil, blueberries, and maple syrup to a shaker and muddle to release juices from the basil and blueberries.
Add in lemon juice, bourbon, and ice cubes.
Top shaker with lid and shake, shake, shake!
Pour into glass, add your lemon twist, and enjoy that smash.*
*Alternately, you can strain the cocktail into your glass to leave the basil and blueberries behind, but then it wouldn't be so much of a smash. It's tasty either way, though!
