One sip of this delicious cocktail and you’ll be hooked! The fresh flavors of peach and basil make this the perfect summer cocktail.
A classic Moscow Mule is made with just 3 ingredients, vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. For this recipe, I put my own spin on the classic! I swapped out traditional vodka for peach vodka, lime juice for lemon juice and added fresh basil leaves.
While today’s Moscow Mule is most commonly made with lime juice, the original Moscow Mule was actually created with lemon juice. So I guess you could say I’m just throwing it back old school in this peach basil variation of the drink!
The fun thing about pesto is that you can easily make it your own based on what greens you have in your fridge or what dish you want to pair it with.
You can also mix up what kind of nuts you use! While pine nuts are the traditional nut used in basil pesto, I used walnuts instead. They’re much less expensive and still work wonderfully in this pesto recipe!
Basil pesto can be added to pizza, tossed with pasta or used as a marinade for chicken or a sauce to top fish. It’s super versatile and so delicious!
