For week’s I’ve been working on some kind of tequila cocktail with grapefruit but different from the Grapefruit Margarita. I wanted something more of a mixed drink in a rocks glass.
So, I experimented with different creations with different ingredients with different liquors, testing them out on my poor, unsuspecting husband until finally one day I hit the nail on the head with this concoction.
It’s herbally, it’s grapefruity, it’s delicious. And it’s strong. Can’t beat that.
Thai One On Cocktail
4-5 Thai basil leaves
1/2 fresh squeezed lime
1 1/2 ounces anejo tequila
1/2 ounce Green Chartreuse
San Pellegrino Grapefruit
In a cocktail shaker, muddle Thai basil leaves and fresh squeezed lime. Add tequila and Chartreuse with ice and shake.
Fill a rocks glass with ice and strain ingredients from cocktail shaker into rocks glass.
Top with San Pellegrino Grapefruit and garnish with lime wheel and sprig of Thai basil.
Makes 1 cocktail.
