Tax Day Lemon-Basil Tini’

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice (Meyer lemons taste the best)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Agave Nectar (organic)
  • 1 1/2 oz. SkinnyGirl Meyer Lemon Vodka (we HEART this! Check out the details here: http://skinnygirlcocktails.com/the-cocktails/vodka-with-natural-flavors)
  • 1 Cup Crushed Ice
  • Lemon Wedge

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add the basil, lemon juice, and agave nectar in a cocktail mixer and muddle the basil. Let it sit for 1 minute so the acid from the lemon breaks down the basil taste a bit.
  2. Add the ice to the shaker, then pour the vodka over it-shake well, for roughly 30 seconds.
  3. Using the strainer, pour the mix into a chilled martini glass and then garnish with the lemon wedge.
  4. Voila!
