    Outstanding! Clean, fresh and perfect for a warm summer evening cocktail. We used Italian blood orange soda (Whole Foods, lemon/orange slices and fresh basil from our garden. A permanent addition to our drink menu - Cheers!

    Waaay too boozy for me (and I do like a drink now and then. We found that adding the whole 6.75oz orange Pellegrino to each glass was perfect...for us.

    Loved the combination of Meyer Lemon and Basil. Would never have thought to combine, but very crisp and refreshing.

    My new favorite cocktail! The basil is nice and understated. I didn't have meyer lemons, but regular lemons worked just fine. I also squeezed the rest of the juice in with it. The second time I made it, I also added the juice of half of a honey tangerine. Great for brunch and I have a feeling it will be my go-to cocktail this summer.
