{friday cocktail: basil margarita}

I'm starting to realize basil might be one of my favorite cocktail ingredients (see recipes using it here, here, here, & here!) so why not try it out in a classic margarita in honor of Cinco de Mayo this coming Monday!  I based this cocktail off of a classic Tommy's Margarita then increased the agave nectar to make it a bit sweeter and muddled in fresh basil to add a fun herbal flavor.  The best past (and the part that makes people think you spent half a day making this drink when in fact you spent about 10 minutes) is the basil sugar/salt mixture used to rim the glass.  Simply mix together a few spoonfuls of sugar and sugar then muddle in fresh basil leaves to infuse a slight basil taste to the garnish!  I hope you enjoy this one alongside some tasty tacos and guacamole this weekend!
