I used fresh lemons and lemon verbena along with Tru2 Organic Gin, which is highly recommend for this cocktail (and others, for that matter). Lemon verbena has a flavor that is like a mild mint with a lemony finish, so we thought it would be perfect for muddling and mixing. And I was right.… Read more

Basil Mojito
