Saucy Madam

The saucy madam

This is the perfect drink for these early season sunny days filled with outdoor chores and spring cleaning. Basil is a wonderful aromatic and herbaceous element to keep your nose engaged just as much as your taste buds!


Equipment: muddler, shaker, strainer, champagne flute

1½ oz Lillet Blanc

¾ oz fresh lemon juice

4 basil leaves, plus 1 leaf for garnish

Sparkling wine


Combine basil leaves and fresh lemon in shaker tin. Muddle gently, and then top with Lillet Blanc. Shake for 20 seconds and strain into champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a basil leaf. Cheers!
