Saw Robert Hess video on this last week and wanted to give it a try. This is an amazing cocktail. Definitely going on the regular rotation now. While it's great this snowy Portland night, this screams summer drinking.
2 oz Fords Gin
1 oz Lemon Juice
2/3 oz Simple Syrup
Bunch of basil
Muddle a large handful of basil in tin, add ingredients and ice. Shake hard and double strain into rocks glass with ice. Garnish with basil leaf.
