About the recipe

The basil cocktail is a modern classic that shines at any cocktail party. But here at Willo, our Wishful Willo Basil Cocktail is quite the phenomenon. Willo’s delicate and fragrant basil is grown to perfection inside our highly advanced indoor vertical farms. Our basil has a bright herbaceous flavor and a beautiful bright green color, and when combined with just the right ingredients, it creates a mind-blowing refreshment. Try it for yourself and serve it at your next gathering – it also makes a delicious mocktail!

Ingredients

  • 3 sprigs Willo basil, plus more for garnish
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 3 oz fresh lemonade 
  • 1 oz agave nectar 
  • 1 oz pineapple juice

 Nufar Basil  Genovese Basil

Directions

  1. Add the basil leaves to a cocktail shaker and gently muddle 4 to 5 times until the oil is released, but the basil is not broken.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into a glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel and a fresh basil leaf.
