A Refreshing Summer Cocktail…

Haven’t named this one yet, but I recommend trying it out. Using some of my Farmer’s Market finds, and plenty of ice, it was a delicious and refreshing drink, that made my friends and I not focus on the fact my apartment is currently without air conditioners, and it’s been close to 90 degrees all week.

This cocktail gets it’s sweetness from the Joe’s Summer Blend Juice with is a mix of apple and lemon juices, but contains no added sugar. Absolute Boston is a blend of Black Tea and Elderflower flavors, and the basil adds another subtle hint of flavor. I’m sure it would also be very delicious with mint.

If you have any ideas for a name… please leave a comment. Thanks!

Absolute Boston Vodka
Red Jacket Orchard’s “Joe’s Summer Blend” Juice
Unsweetened Iced Tea (Preferably Black Tea)
Fresh Basil
Lemon Wedge (for garnish)


Muddle basil leaves in a tumbler glass, add ice, add two parts Absolute Boston, one part iced tea, one part juice, and shake! Garnish with lemon wedge and enjoy.
