This cocktail is delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day. Substitute regular basil plus 1/2 tsp. lemon juice if you can’t find lemon basil.
In the base of a cocktail shaker, muddle the lime and orange wedges, basil, and sugar. Add the rum, lime juice, and enough ice to fill the shaker. Shake until very cold, about 30 seconds. Pour the contents (do not strain) into a highball glass, and top with soda. Garnish with additional basil, if you like.
