The right cocktail can make a party. That's why we partnered with Smirnoff Ice for this post.
A strong martini is a cocktail that can last all night long. It's a strong sipper that's so crisp, and the addition of basil and a touch of fizz takes the classic drink to a whole new level. You might think the basil would overpower with its naturally, earthy flavor, but it actually works alongside the herbaceous notes of the crisp gin.
- 3 ounces gin
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 basil leaf
1 ounce Smirnoff Ice Original Flavor
- Add the ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and add the gin. Shake for 10 seconds.
- Lightly twist a basil leaf, gently bruising it. Place at the bottom of a martini glass.
- Pour the gin over the basil leaf then top with Smirnoff Ice.
- Serve immediately.
