The Concord Fizz Recipe

The Concord Fizz
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Active Time: | Makes: 1 drink

This one reminded me of summers at my grandma and grandpa’s farm. I love the grapy taste of Concords, and the basil added a very pleasant herby flavor. The color is gorgeous! If you don’t have lemon basil, Thai basil, lemon thyme, or lemon verbena is also great in this drink.

This was a final competition cocktail in the CHOW Cocktail Square Off, a cocktail recipe contest copresented with Square OneĀ® Organic Vodka and Om Organics.
