Take A Bao: Basil Lemonade

We were at Take A Bao this past Friday, and I fell in love with their Basil Lemonade cocktail. So yummy and refreshing! We decided to try making them at home and they turned out really well. Definitely our new summer drink!

10 fresh Thai basil leaves

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1.5 ounces simple syrup

1 ounce fresh lemon juice

0.5 ounces fresh orange juice

2.5 ounces Stoli Citrus

Muddle the hand-ripped basil leaves and sugar in a mixing glass. Add the remaining ingredients and a scoop of ice. Shake well for 10 seconds. Pour everything into a highball glass. Serve with a tall straw.
