3 fresh strawberries, cored and sliced
3 basil leaves
Splash of simple syrup (equal parts of sugar and water, boiled until dissolved)
2 ounces vodka (or 1 ounce gin and 1 ounce vodka, apparently)
1/2 ounce lime juice (optional)
Combine muddled strawberries, chilled simple syrup, and basil leave in shaker. Add lime juice if using, vodka (or gin & vodka) and ice, shake. Tip into martini glass, garnish with a basil leaf and/or a strawberry, and enjoy!
