Yield:

Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 4 to 6 large basil leaves, stems removed
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons natural brown sugar, to taste
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 ounces flavored rum or flavored vodka (recommended: Bacardi Coco Rum or Skyy Vanilla Vodka)
  • 3 ounces sweet and sour mix (recommended: Finest Call)
  • Small sprig of basil, for garnish
Directions

Cut the lemon into small cubes. Put all but 1 lemon cube, the basil, and brown sugar together in a glass and muddle until the consistency of a paste or jam. Fill a glass with ice. Pour rum and sweet and sour mix into shaker without ice. Put cap on and shake; this blends the spirit with the mixer and creates a "froth". Strain into glass and stir. Garnish with small spring of basil and cube of lemon and serve immediately.
