Let me tell you something that will amplify your life. Don’t worry: I’m a licensed life-coach. Just kidding. I'm not.
But, if you like gin….this will pretty much fix all of your life problems.
I really think I just came up with this on accident. I saw a recipe for blueberry-lemon gin and tonic that I really wanted to try but I had about none of the required ingredients. Okay, maybe I had like 2 of the ingredients. But boredom gave birth to this and then it made it to my blog.
Blueberry-Basil Gin and Tonic
1 Shot Good Quality Gin (Hendricks, Tanqueray, etc.)
Fresh Basil, plus a few leaves for garnish
Fresh Lemon Wedge
Add the fresh Basil and Frozen Blueberries to a cocktail shaker and muddle pretty well to bring out the flavors of both. Pour in your gin and a handful of ice and give it a really good shaking.
Strain your jolly gin mixture of joy over ice into a fancy ass glass of ice, top with Tonic and a hefty squeeze of a juicy lime wedge and watch the world go by just a little bit slower.
