Recipe by Gail K
Served by my friend Linda of Athens GA on a hot, hot, day. It is now our favorite drink for the summer, and the very best reason to grow basil! I use lemon basil as well as regular, and rim the glass with the cut lime before squeezing.
- 10 basil leaves
- 2 medium limes
- 1 -1 1⁄2 ounce simple syrup (see separate recipe)
- 5 ounces vodka or 5 ounces gin
