B&B (Berry & Basil) Bliss
This weekend my sister and I were asked to come up with a signature cocktail for my cousin's wedding shower. She came up with a concept, the B&B (for Berry &Basil or the bride and groom, Britt and Brooks), and I figured out the recipe. It's one of my new favorites and perfect for a summer drink in a garden!!
If you want to skip the alcohol, follow the recipe without liquor and make a tasty berry basil lemonade!
