Basil Lemontini (Not Your Mother’s Martini)

Basil Lemontini

If you like your martini with more alcohol and a “leaner” taste, increase the vodka to 4 tablespoons.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Basil Simple Syrup [1]
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh Meyer lemon juice (can use juice from a regular lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons vodka
    Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a strawberry and/or fresh basil leaf, if you like.Makes 1 drink.
