The New Year is a time for changing up the routine. Whether it’s your hairstyle or your commitment to the gym. Why not start of this year with a new cocktail to impress your friends and family.

Our Mini Herb Crystals Basil add a kick of flavor and just the right amount of texture. It looks sophisticated and elegant but only you will know just how easy it was to put together!


  • 1 handful Petite Basil
  • Fresh Origins Mini Herb Crystals® Basil
  • 3 Strawberries
  • 1 Lemon – 3 oz Lemon Juice (save one wedge for garnish)
  • 1 tbsp Sugar or Splenda
  • 1.5 oz White Rum
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • Ice


Slice strawberries, keep one slice for garnish. Cut lemon into wedges, save one for garnish. Squeeze lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Add Petite Basil and muddle.  Add strawberries and muddle. Add sugar, rum, triple sec, fill with ice and shake.

Pour Mini Herb Crystals® Basil on a small plate, lay out evenly. Add simple syrup (sugar & water mixture – heat to dissolve sugar) to a small bowl and dip the glass rim in it. Immediately dip glass in the Mini Herb Crystals® Basil plate.

Pour the shaker ingredients into the glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge and a strawberry slice. Top with a tsp of Mini Herb Crystals® Basil.

Enjoy the New Year and don’t forget that at the end of the day it’s about you and your goals.
