For the Easter-Passover season, John makes a spring-y cocktail with ingredients he and Rach have at home.
John's Tip: Use gin instead of vodka, if you'd like.
- 3 to 5 basil leaves, plus more for garnish
- About 3 ounces vodka
- About 1 ounce simple syrup, or to taste
- About 1 ½ ounces lemon juice
- Club soda
In a cocktail shaker, muddle basil leaves, then add vodka, simple syrup and lemon juice. Add ice, cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 ice-filled glasses and top with club soda. Garnish with basil leaves.
Always drink responsibly.
