Monthly Cocktail : Mint-Basil Slush

We are having a hard time believing it’s already August! The hot months of summer are almost behind us, but until then lets raise a glass to this last month of river dipping, tent pitching and backyard drinking. This month’s cocktail is a Mint-Basil Slush. The dry sweetness of our Kings Ridge Riesling and the savory basil leaves create the perfect balance. Enjoy!

 Serves 2

3 oz. 2013 Kings Ridge Riesling
3 oz.  Vodka (we enjoy Reyka) 
2 oz. St. Germain
1 oz. Simple Syrup
5 Basil Leaves
3 Mint Leaves
Around 10 Ice cubes (depends on the blender)

Simply place all of the above ingredients in a blender, pour your cocktail into a glass and then go back to enjoying the rest of summer!
