Raspberry Basil Champagne Cocktail

DSC_0030Okay so I’m being a total cheater today because this cocktail was already featured on Style Me Pretty Living. But I just really, really wanted it up on my own pages. Because, honestly, it’s my favourite recipe to date. I made it mid-morning some time ago specifically to shoot it, and had to literally stop myself from guzzling the whole thing before noon (willpower, commence!) The combination of muddled basil, raspberry, limoncello and champagne is just beyond – it can’t be beat.

PS – Happy Independence Day to my American friends <3 !
