Coffee Break: Basil and Pineapple Martini

So this has nothing to do with coffee…for that I apologize, I’m not trying to mislead readers lol.  However,  I made this drink over the weekend and it is just too good not to share with you!

Basil & Pineapple Martini (adapted from Absolut)

  • 2-3 oz vodka
  • 2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • Chunks of pineapple (canned or fresh)
  • 2 basil leaves

Muddle pineapple chunks, simple syrup and 1 basil leaf in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice cubes. Add vodka, lemon juice and about 1 ounce of pineapple juice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with basil.

Happy Summer! and what is better to go with a summer solstice that a cold martini with light and refreshing flavors??
