Makes 1 drink

This is a fresh-tasting and summery drink, featuring notes of sweet-tart blueberry and savory basil. We used both Blueberry Organic Simple Syrup by Royal Rose and vodka from Split Rock Distilling.

1 ounce blueberries (a medium handful)

5 basil leaves

½ ounce Royal Rose Blueberry Organic Simple Syrup

2 ½ ounces Split Rock Distilling vodka

½ ounce lemon juice

Glass: Martini

Garnish: Basil leaf

Muddle blueberries, basil, and simple syrup. Add vodka and lemon juice, shake vigorously with ice, double strain into glass, and garnish.
