  • Summary

    What I love most about this recipe is that the basil leaves that go into the cocktail shaker don't have to be pretty ones. If you get a batch of basil and some of the leaves are all bruised, you can totally put those into the shaker. Use any nicer leaves for serving in the glass. (Note: 1 ounce is equivalent to 2 tablespoons, if that's easier for you than trying to find a shot glass).

    Ingredients

    • 1 tsp coarse salt
    • 1 medium lemon
    • 8 big fresh basil leaves, divided
    • 1 ounce agave syrup (you can use honey but the flavor overpowers a bit)
    • 1 ounce tequila
