My basil and cilantro are about to go to the bees…


1 handful fresh basil, whatever variety is about to bolt in your garden
1 handful fresh cilantro, the part that hasn’t bolted yet
several shaves of jaggery, or the equivelant of evaporated cane sugar
2 parts tequila, your choice
1 part Triple Sec
juice of ½-1 lime, or to taste


Step 1
Rip up the basil and cilantro leaves as you put them in a cocktail shaker. Add the jaggery and lime juice and muddle a bit.

Step 2
Add the ice, tequila, and triple sec and give it a good, long shake.

Step 3
Strain over ice and garnish with basil or cilantro leaves.
