Basil Lemon Cocktail
Basil infused syrup
Gin or vodka
Sparkling water ( I used La Croix any flavor is fine)
To make basil infused syrup add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a pan, cook on medium
heat until dissolved, turn off the heat and then add 10-15 basil leaves and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Remove basil leaves and place syrup in fridge until ready to use.
To make the cocktail, in a glass add some ice, few tablespoons of syrup, gin or vodka, some sparkling water and a few squirts or lemon juice. Give it a taste and add more of above as desired. If you want to be fancy add a lemon slice and basil to the drink.
