Strawberry-Basil Martini
4 strawberries, stems and leaves removed
3 basil leaves
2 oz. super premium vodka (such as Skyy or Grey Goose)

Prep: 5 minutes  Serves: 1

In a cocktail shaker, muddle strawberries with basil. Add vodka and shake well with ice; strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a sprig of basil or a small strawberry.

Tip: In a cocktail recipe, muddle means to mash or crush ingredients with a muddler, a rod with a flattened end. No muddler? No Problem. Use a long-handled wooden spoon.

Served on 8/8/09. Was not very yummy - was not sweet enough for my taste, perhaps needed more strawberries. Wouldn't make again.
