Baileys' Range cocktail starts with homemade lemonade, syrup

  • 0

Q • The new Baileys’ Range on Shaw has a bourbon and lemonade drink with basil that is really refreshing in this heat. Please see if they will give the recipe for it. — P. Keen, Southhampton

A • Half the fun of ordering this drink at the newest location of Baileys’ Range on Shaw Avenue is sitting in the dining room on a pleasant night when all the overhead door windows open up to the patio.

At home or at the restaurant, it’s the perfect sipping drink for an evening of good food, great drinks and the pleasant company of friends.

The beauty of the drink is that every element except the boozy bits is made fresh at Baileys’, and the owners have shared how you can replicate that at home. The lemonade is tart and not too sweet. The basil simple syrup adds to the crispness, as does the fresh lemon and basil garnish.

In fact, the food, breads, drinks, sides, desserts and even the condiments are all made in house at Baileys’ Range. With American range burgers of 100% grass-fed beef, house-made ice cream and shakes — straight up and boozy both — it’s a tasty place to kick back with family and friends.

The recipe isn’t difficult for the drink, but you’ll spend some time making both the lemonade and the basil simple syrup.

Both will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.

The directions for both elements are in the notes with this recipe, so be sure to find them there. You could buy a quality lemonade, or use a commercial basil simple syrup, but half the fun in making a cocktail is going the extra steps to make it delicious. Baileys’ team even included tips for using these elements in other ways, too. Enjoy experimenting with this summer-perfect recipe that goes with everything at the picnic.
