Perfectly refreshing for Mother’s Day and a great alternative to the Peach Bellini, this is herbal mixology at its best! Peach and basil go so well together and this drink goes down a little TOO easily…watch out! I am a vodka drinker so I substitute vodka for the bourbon and it sure does wet my whistle!

My Peach and Basil Bliss is a part of RedEnvelope’s Mother’s Day Brunch Cocktail series. I was so happy they asked me to participate- I have found many wonderful and thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts over the years at Red Envelope!

    I mix basil in my strawberries drinks all the time and they are divine. I’ve got to try yours with the peach next time. I know it’s going to be wonderful.
