I am trying to prepare a ginger lime (basil) drink mixer. It will be mixed with Whiskey the day of the event.
Is it better to prepare a limeade via steeping or a syrup via cooking? Will the acid in the limes dissolve the ginger and basil over time (i.e. would it ruin the appearance / would I be able to filter them out)?
Will either of them last two weeks until the event? I plan to keep them in a sealed jar in the fridge. Does anyone have any advice on proportions?
