This could be one of the most refreshing and aesthetically pleasing drinks I've ever had. It's an easy cocktail for one and just as simple to make in large quantities for a group. Serve up in a martini glass or on the rocks with a fresh leaf of basil and a thin slice of cucumber.
Basil Lime Cucumber Cocktail 3 ounces vodka 2 basil leaves 4 cucumber slices 1 spoonful of sugar Squeeze of half a lime
Muddle the cucumber and basil in the vodka until the vodka takes on a light green color. Strain into a martini shaker and add the lime and sugar. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved, then add ice, shake, and strain into a martini glass or over ice.
