Campari-Basil Mojito

Ingredients

2 oz Campari
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 oz lime juice
1/4 cup basil leaves, loosely packed
Basil leaves for garnish

Preparation

In the bottom of a cocktail shaker or glass, add the brown sugar, lime juice and 1/4 cup basil leaves. Muddle together with a muddler or a spoon until the sugar has mostly dissolved into the lime juice and there is a nice basil scent released from the leaves. Add the Campari and stir well to combine. Fill a Collins glass or other glass with crushed ice. Pour the Campari-basil mixture over the ice and top with a splash of sparkling water. Serve with basil leaves for garnish.
