Fragrant basil leaves muddled with ice, shaken with vodka and fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and served in a sugar-rimmed glass topped with a basil leaf.

Picture the smell of fresh basil harnessed into a cold, refreshing, slightly sweet and lemony martini on a summer’s evening.  So fabulous.

If you want to try making this delicious concoction yourself, Mizuna’s Alison Collins has generously shared the recipe here.
