12 Grapes serves up Andrea’s Basil Martini

Andrea’s Basil Martini
12 Grapes
(one serving)
â–   3 basil leaves
â–   3 lime wedges
â–   1 oz St-Germain elderflower liqueur
â–   2 oz orange vodka
â–   1 oz orange juice
â–   Splash of club soda
In a rocks glass full of ice, place three basil leaves, three lime wedges, and the St-Germain. Muddle all together, to release the basil and lime flavors. Pour into a shaker with ice; add the orange vodka, orange juice, and a small splash of club soda. Shake vigorously, then strain into a cold Martini glass. Garnish with a small basil leaf and a lime wedge. To serve on the rocks, simply pour into a rocks glass, leaving the muddled basil leaves and limes in the glass.
“This is a nice alternative to a Mojito and leaves the palate with a unique freshness,” says bartender Andrea Prando.
