Basil Cantaloupe Mezcal

"The flavors of cantaloupe and basil go so well together, why not add Mezcal to the mix! Better yet, you can even sub mezcal for tequila if you'd like! This easy and refreshing cocktail is using fresh ingredients that will leave you drinking this all weekend long!"

A Note from Feedfeed

The days are getting longer and hotter as we inch towards summer, so cool down with a refeshing mezcal cocktail that is sweet, subtly herbaceous from the basil, and bubbly! These would be perfect to serve at a happy hour or a summer brunch

Watch Julianna make the the cocktail here!
