ingredients

  • 12 lemon
  • 4 -6 large basil leaves, stems removed
  • 3 -4 teaspoons natural brown sugar, to taste
  • ice cube
  • 1 12 ounces flavored rum (recommended ( Bacardi Coco Rum) or 1 1/2 ounces flavored vodka (recommended, Bacardi Coco Rum)
  • 3 ounces prepared sweet-and-sour mix (recommended ( Finest Call)
  • 1 sprig fresh 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.
