The boy and his poison: The Basil Mojito

This drink falls in the category of accidental yet delicious discoveries. I'm not lucky enough to have a garden and growing herbs in a window box for me would entail finding some sort of city-proof fauna which live solely off of streetlight and exhaust fumes. The downside of this is that I end up buying huge packets of supermarket herbs, the upside is that the left-overs tend to end up in either drink recipes or syrups.

This weekend a pile of basil was glaring guiltily at me from the kitchen as it started to blacken. The sun was out so a refreshing bit of cocktail innovation seemed a good idea. I took the principles of a mojito and gave it a basil and vodka twist.

You'll need:
  • 50ml Vodka
  • 25ml Lime juice
  • A squeeze of honey or agave nectar
  • A handful of basil
  • Sparkling water to top up
Make it 
  • Roughly chop the basil
  • Muddle the basil with the vodka, lime and honey
  • Add lots of crushed ice
  • Top up with sparkling water
