One of my favorite things to do is look around the kitchen at the fresh ingredients available to me and think, “what would make a great cocktail?”. Doesn’t everyone think that way? This cocktail was inspired by blackberries, basil from our garden and Meyer lemons from Frieda’s Produce. I did not want to overwhelm the delicate flavors of the fruit and basil but at the same time wanted to add a little depth. So I picked a young, silver tequila from Asombroso.
