Thai Basil Beso Cocktail

By UrbanRemedy

Thai Basil Beso Cocktail

We asked San-Francisco based mixologist Jonny Cimone of Contempo Cocktails to create a concoction using our cold-pressed Cold Crusher juice. In his tequila-spiked creation, Thai basil leaves play off the carrot, orange, and turmeric in the juice.


Thai Basil Beso


3oz Urban Remedy’s Cold Crusher

1 oz Reposado Tequila

1/2 oz Elderflower Liqueur*

1 oz Blood Orange Honey**

2-3 Thai Basil Leaves***


Place all ingredients into a glass or metal shaker full of ice. Cover and shake well for about 10 seconds, then strain over fresh ice. Garnish with a blood orange slice or thai basil sprigs.

*St. Germain is a good choice for elderflower liqueur; it adds a subtle sweetness and floral fragrance to the drink.

**To make the blood orange honey: blend equal parts fresh blood orange juice and a good local organic honey until thoroughly integrated..

***Regular basil can be used in replacement of thai basil. The thai leaves simply add a mellow spice and anise essence.
