let's chat about basil
01 Freezing: Once blanched, basil can be frozen in water, olive oil or pesto.
02 Dehydrating: Can be accomplished in an electric dehydrator or an oven set at the lowest temperature.
03 Air-drying: The leaves will become brittle and break easily when they're done.
– 1 ounce fresh lime juice – 1 ounce simple syrup – 5–6 fresh basil leaves – 2 ounces of basil infused vodka
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the infused vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup.
Shake well and strain into a chilled glass filled with fresh ice.
