The Garden Gimlet
• Glass – small coupe (or any glass with 4.5 ounce capacity)
• Method – muddle; shake & fine-strain
• Garnish – thyme sprig
• 4 large basil leaves
• .5 oz. bar syrup
• Muddle lightly
• .5 oz. fresh lime juice
• 1.5 oz. organic gin or vodka
Instructions: lightly muddle the basil leaves with bar syrup in the bottom of an empty mixing glass. Add lime juice and vodka. Add ice last. Cap the mixing glass with a shaker tin and shake hard for 10 seconds. Strain through a small, fine mesh strainer (helps catch those little pieces of basil and ice chips) into your cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
Sip. Savor. Repeat.
