When life gives you lemons.... make cocktails!

When life gives you lemons, well, what a gift. Lemons are an incredible, underrated fruit. Delicious with vodka too. 

 

We were heading to a celebration and looked in our magnificent garden at all the lemons that we have simply hanging about. Then we could see an incredible quantity of basil. Yep lets try it!

 

 

Lemon and Basil POP

 

If you can source organic lemons or at least ones that have not been sprayed all over with pesticides (grannies garden).

 

Cut your lemon into 8 pieces. 

Place 4 pieces of lemon in cocktail shaker (I use a large dolmio jar) 

Add 5-6 basil leaves

Muddle vigorously to release all the juice, oil from the zest and basil essence.

Add:

30 ml vodka

30 ml sugar syrup

a few cubes of ice

Place lid on the shaker and give it your best bartender.

Strain into a glass over ice and top with sparkling mineral water

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Australia one standard nip is 30ml.
