BASIL LIME DAIQUIRI

Our family took an RV trip over Memorial Day Weekend - I mixed up these yummy cocktails for my husband and I, serving them from the bumper of the RV.

BASIL LIME DAIQUIRI



Simmer 1/2 cup water with 1 1/2 cups basil leaves until liquid is reduced to 2 1/2 tablespoons. Let sit a minute or two, strain, then stir in 2 teaspoons light brown sugar and 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice. In a shaker, 1/2 filled with ice, combine the basil-lime syrup with 2 ounces of light rum and 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice, shake.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with basil.
Enjoy!
