The fresh basil in my garden was begging to jump into some tequila so I made these today.
1.5 oz good tequila
1 oz cointreau or orange liqueur
1 oz fresh lime juice
4 fresh basil leaves
optional- 1/4 oz agave syrup (I used it today, depends on my mood)
Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, muddle up a little bit, toss in 5 ice cubes and shake hard. Strain and pour over ice!
