- 1 1/2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce orange liqueur (Triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
- 3/4 ounce Meyer lemon juice
- 1/4 ounce agave syrup
- 4-5 basil leaves, chopped
Mix all ingredients in a tall cup, and, using an immersion blender, whirl for a minute or so until basil is very finely chopped into the liquid.
Pour into an ice-filled cocktail shaker, and shake for 30 seconds until well chilled. Pour through a strainer into a martini glass. Float a fresh basil leaf on top and serve.
