  • thick rim of salt, sugar, sandwich cookie crumbs* (equal parts)
  • 2 maraschino cherries, 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.
