Basil Expedition Cocktail
Maple syrup (in season right now) makes for an easy substitute for your cocktails made with simple syrup. Try it with a white rum (like Brugal Extra Dry), citrus, and basil for a surprising spring cocktail.
- 2 Ounces Brugal Extra Dry Rum
- 1 Ounce lemon juice
- 1/2 Ounce maple syrup
- 1 tangerine
- 3 basil leaves
Muddle tangerine in a cocktail shaker. Combine Brugal, juice, syrup, and basil on top of tangerine. Shake with ice, and fine strain into a Coupe. Garnish with a basil leaf.
