when life gives you basil…

…make a cocktail!

this cocktail is a combination of a bee’s knees and a gin basil smash. i’m not sure what to call it. smashed bees? gin basil knees?

nyum nyum nyum nyum

3 parts gin
2 parts honey syrup (equal mix of honey and water)
1 part lemon juice
2 sprigs of basil (i used red basil because i had  8 pounds leftover after cooking with it. why does basil come in 10 pound bunches?)

anyway, muddle your basil in the gin. mash it up real good. your gin will turn green and that is a good thing. pour green gin and basil in an old fashioned glass filled with ice and add the remaining ingredients. stir until cold (like…1 full minute) and enjoy!
