Add simple syrup*, basil and raspberries to shaker tin. Gently muddle, making sure to not tear basil leaves. Set aside. Crush ice by adding cubes to a plastic bag, wrapping the bag in a towel, then crushing ice with a rolling pin, meat tenderizer or the like.

Remove basil from shaker tin and pour mixture into a cocktail glass. Pack crushed ice in glass. Pour Szechwan Peppercorn Basil Lemonade over the top. Garnish with sugared raspberries.

*Simple Syrup: Equal parts water and sugar, heated until dissolved. Cool. Store refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.
