We bought a little basil plant at a local farmers market with the intention of having some fresh basil for cooking, but I also have been wanting to try some muddled basil cocktails like the Basil and Pineapple Martini. If you're thinking, "EW!!!", I was right there with you until I really started to enjoy muddling everything in sight as it unleases the fruit and/or herbs wonderful flavors. 

Ingredients:

4 parts Absolut Vodka

2 parts lemon juice

1 part simple syrup

1 piece of pineapple (I used fresh)

1 leaf basil (fresh would be best)

Method:

Muddle pineapple, basil and syrup in a shaker. Fill with ice cubes and add vodka and lemon juice. Shake and strained into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with basil.

Cheers and enjoy this well balanced, mellow cocktail!
