Confessions of a Mixologist: Basil Gin Gimlet
You've never had a gimlet? What are you waiting for? It's a classic combination of gin, lime and soda. Easy peasy. This refreshingly crisp cocktail delights with Sunday brunch, dinner salad or hummus and cheese. Our addition of basil gives the classic a savory twist. You'll feel good drinking it, considering the herb's great heath benefits. Make sure to muddle the basil into granulated sugar - the sugar's sharp crystals tear open the basil to release its flavor.

- 2 oz Gin
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 2 basil leaves muddled, 1 to garnish
