Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz blanco tequila (we used Casamigos Blanco)
  • 2 oz lychee liqueur
  • 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 4 basil leaves
  • thick rim of salt, sugar, sandwich cookie crumbs* (equal parts)
  • 2 maraschino cherries, for garnish
  • 2 lychee balls, for garnish

Instructions

1: Combine the tequila, lychee liqueur, lemon juice and basil into a cocktail shaker.

2: Muddle herbs, then add ice.

3: Shake vigorously for 12 to 15 seconds.

4: Strain into a small, rimmed martini glass.

5: Garnish the cherries inside the lychee balls (as eyeballs) through a skewer.

*To add a sugar, salt and sandwich-cookie rim, wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and agave nectar, then roll the rim through the mixture.
