1. Grow a shitload of basil.
2. Muddle one whole lemon (cut in half) with a hearty handful of basil.
3. Add 2 oz. of simple syrup*, ice and 4 oz. of gin.
4. Shake, shake, shake. Shake, shake, shake.
5. Pour and ENJOY!
*Simple syrup is just about the easiest thing to make: Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water, boil, let cool, refrigerate the leftovers for up to a week.
