Basil Lime Cucumber Cocktail Recipe

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.
