I got a quick tutorial for how to make a Strawberry Basil Martini the other day at WP Kitchen + Bar. It seemed like the kind of knowledge I should share:
Step one: Chop up four fresh strawberries and muddle with several leaves of basil. Step two: Pour in 3.5 ounces of vodka (preferably Ban). Step three: Pour in 3 ounces of simple syrup. Step four: Shake vigorously with ice. Step five: Strain into glass with sugar rim and strawberry garnish. Step six: Drink and repeat.
