Quick Fix: Pesto Martini

Bring basil to your cocktails but do it with style. Basil adds a great flavor to your drinks and pairs nicely with the juniper profile of gin.
Try the Pesto Martini for a treat tonight.

2 1/2oz dry gin
1/2oz dry vermouth
3 basil leaves
1/2oz jigger of pine nuts

Gently muddle 2 basil leaves and pine nuts in a mixing glass. Add ice, gin, vermouth, and stir. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a large basil leaf and a few pine nuts.

If it's good enough for pasta it's good enough for gin.

Enjoy Ya'll!
