Golden Basil-Ginger Margarita

July 9, 2011

Author Notes:

Last year I made a batch of Basil-Ginger syrup from Fine Cooking and I had plenty left and tried a little of it in a margarita. I love simple margaritas rather than flavored, but the syrup was a nice touch for a change.


Makes: 1 batch of syrup


  • 2 parts sugar
  • 1 part water
  • 1 1/2 inch sliced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, torn
