🍸 🌿 Ginger Basil Martini 🌿 🍸
I’ve got more of that beautiful Italian Basil from my local urban indoor Frontier Farms. So I’m putting it to good use in a Ginger Basil Martini, a flavorful and refreshing cocktail that combines the zesty and spicy notes of ginger with the aromatic and herbaceous qualities of basil.
Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur is made with a combination of ginger, honey, herbs, and vanilla, which contributes to its sweet and spicy flavor profile. The sweetness from the honey, along with the natural sugars in the ginger, gives the liqueur its distinctively sweet character so there is no need to add any additional sugar or simple syrup to this cocktail.
1 1/2 oz. French Ginger Liqueur (Domaine de Canton)
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
5 Italian Basil Leaves (Frontier Farms)
2 oz. Vodka (Tito’s Handmade Vodka)
Basil Sprig and Lemon Wedge for Garnish
Place ginger liqueur, lemon juice, and basil leaves in a cocktail shaker. Muddle well. Let sit to infuse for 5 minutes. Add vodka and plenty of ice. Shake vigorously to well-chill.
Strain into a martini glass. (OK to have flecks of basil). Garnish with basil sprig and lemon wedge.
Nibble on the fragrant basil while sipping on your martini! À votre santé!
