Basil Gimlet

Light, refreshing, and crisp, a traditional basil gimlet clocks in at 215 calories, but when made with shochu (like in our basil gimlet recipe), it doesn't even hit the 100-calorie mark. Best of all, a basil gimlet feels light going down — the combination of basil and lime gives the cocktail a nice clean taste that isn't heavy at all. Make it even more interesting by muddling some hydrating cucumber into the drink.
