of a very ripe nectarine
coconut rum is also tasty
large basil leaf
nectarine slices, and lime slice for garnish
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).
Add ice to the glass, followed by a splash of sparkling water.
Garnish and serve!
*It is important that the nectarine is very ripe. This ensures as much flavor and sweetness as possible.
