Drinking With The Maggots – Tahoe Blue Basil Martini

From Maggot Diane

  • 3oz Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice

Muddle basil, simple syrup and lime together.
Add vodka
Combine in cocktail shaker with lots of ice.
Shake well, until there are shards of ice and until the mix is frothy.
Pour and enjoy!!

Our resident bartender, Kyle, provides his twists on the drink as follows:

This drink has a nice fresh taste to it.
I would add in your favorite fresh fruit.
Some Examples would be: Raspberries, Strawberries, blueberries or blackberries.
My favorite twist would be add a few chunks of watermelon to be muddled up and then add a little bit of mint to it as well.
You can replace the simple syrup with honey.

My other twist would to add 3oz of ginger beer and 1 oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice in replace of the lime juice.
