Another day, another combination. I’d really like to do them all in one sitting but 5am would look worse than it already does.
Whoa! The Cherry-Basil combination is better than the Blueberry-Basil and I was not expecting that. The Cherry Vodka is extremely rich; cherry hitting all parts of the mouth and tongue at once with a sweet-tart flavor. The basil from the Basil Syrup adds a citrus note to the mix, brightening the cherry flavor and balancing the sweetness.
Overall this was a sweeter experience than Blueberry-Basil but I found adding basil strips tricked my brain into focusing more on the basil than the sweet. Next time I think I’ll tie up the basil strips somehow so its less like drinking a martini through lawn cuttings.
Shake over ice and strain into a martini glass.
