Swamp Cooler

While waiting for the charcoal grill to get ready to cook an entire antelope and half of a bull, we needed a drink. We made this up based on the Silent Order cocktail. The measurements are all about the same, only we didn’t add any water because we were going to add club soda and serve it over ice. It was a refreshing way to pretend that the Texas sun isn’t a million freaking degrees.

The Swamp Cooler
2 oz green chartreuse
1/2 oz lime juice
7-10 basil leaves

Shake everything together over ice. Double strain into a glass of ice and top with club soda.

Drink it outdoors.
