Posted: May 11 2017
It already feels like summer, doesn't it?
3 basil leaves, plus 1 basil sprig
1/4 ounce Simple Syrup
2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce limoncello
1/2 ounce bianco vermouth (sweet white vermouth)
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the basil leaves with the Simple Syrup. Add ice and all of the remaining ingredients except the sprig; shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the sprig.
