Basil Martinis

A basil martini is the perfect compliment to an Italian or Mediterranean meal. The effect of the basil is intended to be a little subtle. If you find it too intense, reduce the amount of basil you use.

Instructions

Roll the basil leaves between your hands to release some of the oils.

Place in a cocktail shaker with the vodka and vermouth.

Fill the cocktail shaker half way with ice and shake vigorously for 1 minute.

Strain through a mesh strainer into glasses, garnish and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 6 medium to large leaves fresh basil, plus small leaves for garnish
  • 6 ounces premium vodka
  • Vermouth to taste (start with 1/2 teaspoon)
  • Ice
