Summer must be on the way this Cocktail Friday! The Northern Peach from Crystal Head Vodka blends their premium signature spirit with botanical basil and the sweetness of peach; lovely for a hen’s lunch as the days get warmer!
1 ½ oz. Crystal Head Vodka
2 ½ oz. natural peach juice
¼ oz. basil simple syrup
fresh basil leaves
Pour all ingredients into a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake well then strain into a martini glass.
Basil Simple Syrup:
Add equal parts sugar and water in a pot, along with 4-5 basil leaves. Bring to a boil ensuring not to scorch the sides. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Store and cool mixture before using. Will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Garnish with a fresh basil leaf.
*Slap leaf between hands first to release oil
