Ingredients
For the simple syrup
1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar

For the cocktails
10 small to medium basil leaves (don't use large, old ones), 1 lime, 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce Cointreau, 1 tablespoon simple syrup, 4 ounces of club soda.

How to make
Make the simple syrup
Boil the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Place in a small container and refrigerate until cold.

Make the cocktail

Have two cocktail glasses ready with ice cubes in them. Slice the lime in half. Cut one half into quarters. Use the other half to make slices for the finished cocktail.

In a cocktail shaker, add the lime quarters and the basil. Using the muddler, press the limes and basil until the limes give up their juice. Use a slight rotating motion as you press. You don't want to overdo it just press until the juice is released.

Add 1 cup of ice cubes to the shaker. Add the tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup and club soda. Place the top on the shaker and shake gently for a few seconds. Pour into the glasses and garnish with lime slices.

It can be served to 2 people.
