Cheers! You’ll fall in love with this Basil Lemon Berry cocktail!
2 oz Lemon Vodka
1 oz lime juice
2 T strawberry simple syrup* 3 each basil leaves
2 blueberry ice cubes* More regular ice cubes to shake with
To make strawberry simple syrup, combine 1⁄2 cup sugar, 1⁄2 cup water, and 8 strawberries in a small saucepot. Bring just to a boil and then chill until no longer warm in refrigerator. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain syrup into a container and discard strawberries.
To make blueberry ice cubes, fill your ice cube molds with as many blueberries as possible! Then pour water over until covered and freeze until solid. This ensure your cocktail stays cold while it doesn’t water down your drink!
In a cocktail shaker, combine basil, lemon vodka, lime juice, and chilled simple syrup. Muddle until basil is well broken up. Add a few ice cubes to the shaker and shake until well combined and chilled. Using your favorite cocktail glass, pour cocktail through the fine mesh strainer over blueberry ice cubes and enjoy!
