Blue Moon & Basil
Moonshine and fresh fruit are an excellent pair. The Blue Moon & Basil takes advantage of fresh, juicy blueberries and makes for one pretty-looking drink. Prepare as you would an old-fashioned - we're talking muddled sugar and fruit, liquor and just the bare minimum on soda for that final sparkle!
- 2 oz. Stills Crossroads Alabama 'Shine
- 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
- Handful of Fresh Blueberries
- Fresh Lemon Juice
- Fresh Basil
- Soda Water
Place a handful of blueberries in the bottom of a rocks glass, along with simple syrup and a splash of fresh lemon juice. Muddle thoroughly. Add Stills Crossroads Alabama 'Shine. Next, clap a few leaves of basil between your hands to release the flavor/aromatics and place in the glass. Add ice to fill and use a shaker cup to invert, mix and incorporate all ingredients. Top with a spritz of soda water and garnish with a spear of blueberries and/or lemon wedge.
