Thirsty Thursday: Get Your Green Gaijin On!
Looking for a fun and fresh cocktail to serve during your summer nuptials? With organic lime juice and Brazil’s finest liquor, The Green Gaijin is a perfect blend of style and taste.
Order the Green Gaijin at Happy Hour at Echo Palm Beach, or whip it up at home!
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 oz. Leblon Cachaça
5-6 Green Grapes
1 1/2 oz. Organically Sweetened Basil Lime Juice (recipe below)
Splash Fiji Soda Water
Muddle grapes in a mixing tin. Add Leblon and sweetened basil lime juice with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a highball with ice. Splash Fiji soda water on top. Garnish with a fresh basil leaf wrapped around a green grape.
Organically Sweetened Basil Lime Juice:
Use the ratio of 1 oz. of fresh basil to every 6 oz. of fresh lime juice and 3 oz. of agave nectar. Combine all in a blender. Blend fine then run through a chinois to remove thickness.
