Raspberry Basil Limakazie Recipe

I recently celebrated my birthday with a few friends of mine and had Basil Kamakazie and it was AMAZING!  I have been daydreaming of another Basil drink ever since and when I bought my Basil plant for the season, I knew it was time to experiment.  What did I come up with?  How about a Raspberry Basil Limakazie!  My hubby is not a drinker, but I told him he had to taste this and even he said, “Wow, that’s good!”  Ummm Hmmm… You definitely want to save this one, lol.  The recipe is for a single drink (yes, I like mine stiff) so adjust it for your taste or multiply it and put it in a pitcher for your next BBQ.  Enjoy!
