Italian Mojitos (Basil + Lime)
Italian Mojitos made with fresh basil, lime juice, and of course vodka! Such a fun and pretty cocktail just begging to be made this Summer. Cheers!
- 1 1/2 cups simple syrup heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes
- 1 cup Pearl Lime Basil Vodka you can use regular good quality vodka, but trust me this is delish!!
- Juice from 3 limes
- 1 cup club soda chilled
- Fresh basil and lime slices for garnish
In a pitcher, combine simple syrup, club soda, lime juice, and vodka. Stir to combine.
Prepare each glass by placing a lime wedge and a couple leaves fresh basil in the bottom. Cover with ice. (if not using Lime Basil Vodka, muddle the lime wedge and basil leaves to release some of the flavor. this isn't necessary if using the Lime Basil Vodka)
Pour mojitos over ice and serve! Enjoy!
Garnish with more basil and lime wedges if desired.
