Basil Vodka Gimlet Cocktail Recipe

For today, we are making a refreshing recipe for a drink with vodka that does not need more than 4 ingredients: Gimlet Basil Vodka.

The Gimlet cocktails family is generally very simple. They are usually prepared with dry gin or with vodka, lemon juice, and liquid sugar. However, as we like to experiment with the ingredients, we decided to add something different: basil.

We were surprised by the result! Packed with flavor and ease at the same time, the Basil Vodka Gimlet is ideal to enjoy during the upcoming spring/summer season. 

In addition, its preparation is easy; it resembles the Mojito, and that is why we decided to include this recipe in our blog. Hopefully, you will dare to make it at home. Below we present the recipe.
