Nothing can quite capture the excitement and zest you feel just before boarding for an amazing trip, but we think we’ve gotten close with this recipe for the Jet Set margarita. And if you can persuade the Flight Attendants to hook up the cucumber and basil, you can enjoy this one in the air!
Muddle basil in a mixing tin. Add other ingredients and shake with ice. Strain over fresh ice in a highball glass. Garnish with a cucumber wheel and a flag of basil.
