It might look like a Basil Smash but it’s actually an Albahaca Flor.
We found the recipe online, on a Swedish list of fabulous summer drinks. Now when winter has heavily hit Sweden we are slightly longing for summer again we guess . . .
The basil makes this cocktail intensely green and it’s obviously a drink for lovers of herbal notes. (If you want a green cocktail without herbal taste, look at our Matcha Sour Cocktail).
What’s in it?
2 oz pisco
0,5 oz elderflower liqueur
0,5 oz lemon juice
0,5 oz simple syrup
a few basil leaves
Shake hard with ice to smash the basil leaves. Add a few drops of desired bitters (we used peychauds, hence the red roof on the coktail) and decorate with a basil leaf.
