 Thai Basil and Lime Kamikaze

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

My wife, Jackie, grows all kinds of basil in her herb garden, and sometimes we put a few leaves in a glass of sparkling water. A little Thai basil also perks up an icy Kamikaze on a hot summer day.

Yield: Makes 1 serving

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 small sprig fresh Thai basil or regular basil
  • ¾ ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce Triple Sec
  • ½ lime, cut into 4 wedges

Directions

Pick the basil leaves from the stem and set I leaf aside for garnish.

Chill a martini glass. In a mixing glass, half filled with crushed ice or broken-up ice cubes, muddle the vodka, Triple Sec, and lime with a bar stick. Add the basil leaves and bruise them. Strain into the chilled martini glass, garnish with the remaining basil leaf, and serve.
