The Magnetini

Try our twist on a cocktail classic to get the party started.

Ingredients (for one cocktail)

50ml Vodka

25ml gomme or sugar syrup (you can make a batch of this by putting an equal measure of cold water and sugar in a pan and bringing to the boil. Allow the mixture to cool and transfer to an empty glass bottle before using)

4 basil leaves

The juice of one lime

Ice

Method

  1. Put the basil leaves, sugar syrup and lime juice into a cocktail shake and muddle until the basil leaves have broken down slightly (you can use a rolling pin if you don’t have a muddler!)
  2. Add the vodka and ice.
  3. Put the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously until the mix turns frothy.
  4. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a basil leaf.
