a fork, plate and spoon SERVES 1 serving
clock TOTAL TIME 5 Min
hand holding a serving platter DIFFICULTY 1/5


  • 2 oz Belvedere vodka
  • ½ oz sweet and sour mix
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 2 basil leaves
  • ½ oz simple syrup

Here’s how you do it:

  1. This is going to be a little weird, but smack the basil. Yeah, just put it in the palm of your hand and smack it with your other hand. (It feels, frankly, a little wrong… but trust us, the basil doesn’t mind. In fact, the herb rewards you with extra aromatics when you do this!)
  2. Drop the aroma-unlocked basil into your cocktail shaker. Add some ice.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients one-by-one.
  4. Shake it, vigorously.
  5. Pour into a glass, passing it through a strainer on the way down to aerate.
  6. Fancy bonus! Cut a little extra basil into a swirly shape and perch on the edge of the glass.
