In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine basil, and blueberries in a mixer and muddle. I don't have an official tool to muddle so I just used the end of a metal measuring spoon.
  2. Add the soda, tonic, bourbon and ice to mixer and shake a few times.
  3. Pour mixture into cocktail glasses and drizzle with honey. You can also drizzle honey in glass prior to pouring.
  4. Taste and top off with more soda or tonic as needed.
