The weekend is almost here, and it’s not too soon to be thinking cocktails. Here’s a recipe for a sweet basil martini from one of Asheville’s most popular restaurants, The Laughing Seed. Makes two drinks.
Two 5-3 ounces of Rain organic Vodka (I recommend five ounces, of course.)
One squeeze of organic lemon juice
One splash of dry vermouth (I like a very light slash.)
A fistful of organic basil, leaves and stems
Organic cherry tomatoes for garnish
Directions: Pour all the ingredients into a martini shaker with ice and shake hard and then strain into a glass. Mmmm. Magic.
