Ingredients

7 organic basil leaves

1/2 ounce simple syrup

3/4 ounce fresh lime juice

1 1/2 ounces gin, such as 209 Gin

Directions

  1. Place 6 of the basil leaves in the palm of your hand and clap. Place the leaves in the base of a cocktail shaker and add the simple syrup and lime juice. Pummel the basil leaves with a muddler to release the oils. Add the gin to the shaker along with ice. Put the top on the cocktail shaker and shake. Using a strainer, pour the mixture into a glass. 
  2. Place the remaining basil leaf in your hand and clap. Garnish the cocktail with the basil leaf and serve.
