Nectarine and Basil Mojito
Recipe Type: Cocktails
Serves: 1 cocktail
  • ⅓ of a very ripe nectarine, thinly sliced*
  • 1½ oz white rum (coconut rum is also tasty)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 large basil leaf, julienned
  • 3 mint leaves
  • sparkling water
  • crushed ice
  • basil leaves, nectarine slices, and lime slice for garnish
  1. In the bottom of a glass, muddle the nectarine slices with the rum, lime juice, mint and basil leaf (this is also where you would add any sweetener, if using).
  2. Add ice to the glass, followed by a splash of sparkling water.
  3. Garnish and serve!
  4. *It is important that the nectarine is very ripe. This ensures as much flavor and sweetness as possible.
