Lemon Basil Mojitos

Jump To Recipe
It’s FRIDAY and time to shake up a cocktail.  Since it’s a holiday weekend I’m going to post a few easy things to try while you’re with friends and family.  Not sure if ya’ll remember when I was down in Charleston a couple months ago I had a pre-dinner Lemon Basil Mojito at one of the restaurants we went to.  Dear god, was it good.  It’s the love child of an Italian and a Cuban in a glass.  I have been dying to give these Lemon Basil Mojitos a whirl at home ever since.  I planted basil a few weeks ago and it has grown like a weed so…mojito time has officially commenced!!  Cheers friends!

    Was this the Italian Mojito from Wild Olive? That was the best drink I have ever had!
