  • 3/4 Ounce Fresh Lime Juice

  • 1 Ounce Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 Cup Sugar

  • 1/2 Cup Filtered Water

  • 1 Teaspoon Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning

  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

  • 6-8 Thai Basil Leaves

  • 1 1/2 Ounces Dark Rum

  • 2 Ounces Prosecco or Sparkling Wine

  • Clear


  1. Make the Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning Simple Syrup by mixing 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup filtered water and 1 teaspoon Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning in a sauce pan and bringing to a low boil. Simmer until the sugar and seasoning is dissolved.
  2. Muddle the lime juice, Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning Simple Syrup, bitters, and basil leaves in a shaker. You want the basil to release its flavor and scent. Add in the dark rum and shake again.
  3. Strain into your favorite cocktail glass and top with Prosecco or sparkling wine. Garnish with a slice of lime. Enjoy!
