Lucy Basilia

Lucy Basilia cocktail with fresh basil, blackberries, vodka, honey syrup, lemon juice, and sparkling water

Kendra Thompson’s Lucy Basilia is a flagship cocktail at Lucy’s Fried Chicken, an Austin chain of eateries. They’ve been serving the recipe for the better part of a decade, and it’s clear why – the fresh, bright flavors are a perfect match for fried food and Southern specialties.

If you’re short on plain club soda or sparkling water, a flavored sparkling water with a subtle lemon or berry flavor is plenty serviceable.

If you prefer a clearer drink, double-strain it through a fine mesh sieve into the glass. We tend to double-strain drinks that might contain berry pips or bits of greenage – but in this case, we actually prefer a more rustic presentation.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by gently muddling the blackberries and basil in a shaker. Add ice, vodka, honey syrup, and lemon juice and shake well. Strain (double-strain if you wish) into a tall ice-filled glass and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a slice of lemon and fresh blackberries and basil leaves.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
