Who wants a cocktail?! So this frozen concoction was actually part of a summer garden party I hosted last year (you might have seen it here), but I just had to share the recipe with you in case you missed it. I’ve remade this delicious frozen basil blender numerous times. It is always a hit and deserves a top spot in your summer recipe list.
I really would have thought you had lost your mind about putting basil in a fruity drink before I tried these! TRUST ME! It’s absolutely the most delicious frozen drink. The basil adds the perfect kick to the pina colada flavor. And if you haven’t thought about growing your own basil, I highly recommend it. I have a black thumb and even I figured out how to grow a pretty little basil plant this year! Basil is a great garnish for not only drinks but pizzas, pastas, etc.
