History
My husband drank something like this on a business trip and told me about it when he got home. Came up with this, and he thought it was really good.
From other users
  • really nice - I was skeptical with the quantity of Cointreau, but it balances out the lime. Ginger adds a kick. I might try muddling another basil leaf in and pouring over a bit of ice too. — ☆☆☆☆
  • MC remarks "quite tasty!" -- the tartness of the lime with the subtle ginger worked. I muddled the ginger and 2 basil leaves and strained it. Might add more basil next time. — ☆☆☆☆
