BOLSHOI BASIL COCKTAIL
Both ancient Egyptians and ancient Greeks believed basil could open the gates of heaven. The good news is we don't have to wait until our souls leave our bodies to enjoy basil's sensitive warmth and subtle sweetness.
4 parts Russian Standard Vodka
3 parts fresh lime juice
3 fresh basil sprigs
2 tsp. sugar
Muddle the basil and sugar in a highball glass. Fill with ice, add vodka and lime juice, and stir. Finish with a dash of soda and garnish with a sprig of basil.
