Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Instead of the mozzarella and tomato garnish, simply garnish the cocktail with a basil leaf on the side of the glass.
  • To make this for a crowd, multiply the ingredients per number of guests and use a pitcher instead of a cocktail shaker for mixing. Refrigerate until guests arrive, and pour the cocktails into ice-filled glasses just before serving.
