The clean, summery aroma of basil completely transforms the classic julep, traditionally made with mint. The drink is also traditionally made with Bourbon — here, we replaced that with Jameson Irish whiskey, whose subtle citrus notes intermingle beautifully with the sweet herbs.
The floral flavor of gin is a natural match for bright grapefruit and elderflower liqueur in a refreshing cocktail inspired by the sodas at Cannonborough Beverage Company. Fresh tarragon adds an aromatic, peppery anise note.
