Recipe: Sweet Basil Cocktail

This recipe comes to us from Virginia mixologist Todd Thrasher, as published in Food & Wine Cocktails ’09. Fun little cocktail… as long as you like basil!

The photo in the book is a whole lot greener, I have to say.

    I was blown away by the crystal! I have a set of these beautiful glasses given to me by my grandmother. I love basil and will be trying to duplicate the recipe, glass and all!
