We’re making our nectarine mojitos with basil this week, one of our favorite nectarine recipes! Combine the sweet flavor of nectarine juice with lime to create these delicious basil cocktails. Adults only!
Nectarines are a summer favorite, so why not take full advantage and make something delicious with them before they’re gone? As the summer winds down, we’re trying to get situated for school. To be completely honest, i’m just not ready for the warm weather and pool days to end. Who do I talk to in order to request an extension?
We’re riding the summer weather until the wheels fall off, and these cool nectarine drinks are hitting the spot! Give these nectarine mojitos with basil a try, a sweet flavor with a hint of basil and your favorite rum is the perfect refresher! Leave out the rum for a tasty beverage that the kids can enjoy as well, that’s how I made mine!
Nectarine Mojitos With Basil Cocktail
- 1 whole nectarine, ripe
- 20 fresh basil leaves
- 1 lime, cut into 10 thin slices
- 3 tbsp. simple syrup or agave
- 2 cups club soda
- 4 oz. white rum — leave this out to make it a skinny virgin
How to make a mojito at home
Ok, this is a pretty easy drink to make. Muddle your basil leaves, nectarine juice, half of the slices of lime in a medium-sized bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir in your sugar until completely dissolved. Taste and add more to achieve the desired flavor. If your nectarine was very sweet, you may not want to use as much simple syrup in your nectarine mojitos.
Add your club soda and rum (no rum if you’re making it a virgin) into the bowl and mix, pour over ice in a glass, and garnish with the remaining lime slices and a few basil leaves. Serve immediately, because it’s better that way, and this is a really good basil rum cocktail and your guests will see it and won’t be able to wait!
This basil cocktail will be one of your favorite nectarine recipes!
Making these nectarine mojitos with basil was such a good idea, I don’t know if I should admit this, but I think I like nectarines more than peaches! I love how these turned out, I ended up making another batch for our next adult event. End your summer with a delicious BANG! Give this recipe a try. You’ll thank me!
