Cocktails | Basil Mojito

Posted on August 14, 2011

We had these at LB Steak, they were so refreshing and good. We asked the bartender how to make them, here it is.

Yield: 1 serving

basil mojito


10 basil leaves, chiffonade

1 1/2 ounces simple syrup

1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice

2 ounces Bacardi Silver or other premium light rum

splash of club soda



Put basil leaves, syrup, lime juice, and rum in a cocktail shaker. Muddle. Fill 12 ounce highball glass with crushed ice. Pour mixture over ice, top with a splash of club soda. It's nice if you have a straw to drink this with.
