{Cocktail Friday} Raspberry Basil Limoncello

2013 June 21

Happy Friday to you, happy Friday to you, happy Friday dear frieeends…happy Friday to you! Jason and I are off to Palm Springs for a weekend of relaxation poolside and I’m so happy to have a mini-vacation that I’m singing like a lark! But before I skip off to the desert, I’m sharing the perfect weekend drink recipe for a Raspberry Basil Limoncello Cocktail straight from my very favorite “Lark”, Jacquelyn. What are your weekend plans? I hope you take a moment for yourself, relax and enjoy it. Cheers!

    This looks delicious Leah! I love raspberries but I’d probably sub strawberries since they pair so well with basil.
