So of course I had to try this recipe. I whipped up a batch last night for myself and the Hub. It was wonderful. I’ve played with putting basil in drinks before but especially like it with the grapefruit juice. (I think next time I’ll omit the simple syrup because I don’t mind the slight bitterness of the grapefruit.)

When citrus is abundant I make a really simple salad of grapefruit, orange and basil. Delicious!

I make a basil cocktail (I refuse to call it a martini).

Muddle a handful of basil in in a cocktail shaker with about 3/4 tb of agave nectar and juice from one lime. Add ice, and vodka (3 oz. or so)and shake and strain into a glass of your choice. Adjust to your tastes.
