Basil & Citrus Dulce Leaf Margarita

The lemon and lime slices, basil leaves, and dulce leaves & buttons create a bright, refreshing citrus flavor with an intriguing herbaceous quality. The addition of club soda at the end of this cocktail adds an extra effervescent tingle. We recommend not salting the rim for this margarita so that the flavors really shine.

  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 Lime Slices
  • 2 Lemon Slices
  • 3 Basil Leaves
  • 3 Dulce Leaves

Combine lime and lemon slices, basil leaves and dulce leaves & buttons in a mixing glass.


Muddle thoroughly.
