Seedlip Cranberry and Basil Margarita - Cook & Nelson

By Kelly Gibney

Serves 1

A lower alcohol take on a margarita. Cranberry juice adds a gentle sweetness and gives it a gorgeous blush colour. Basil adds a garden-fresh twist.


  • 50ml Seedlip Grove 42
  • 15ml blanco tequila
  • 30ml cranberry juice
  • 15ml lime juice
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • Flaky sea salt to coat rim
  • To serve: additional fresh basil leaves
  1. Place the Seedlip Grove 42, tequila, cranberry juice, lime juice and basil into a shaker that has plenty of ice. Shake vigorously.
  2. Run a lime segment around the rim of the serving glass and dip it in flaky sea salt to create a perfect salty rim.
  3. Place fresh ice cubes into the glass and strain the cocktail into the glass.
  4. Enjoy!
