The Basilico Cocktail


  • 3 oz citron vodka
  • 1 oz peach liqueur
  • 1 oz apple liqueur
  • 3 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • strawberries (2 for garnish)
  • basil leaves
  • 1 ripe peach
  • 1 ripe apple


  • To make your peach and apple liqueurs chop each into pieces and place in a mason jar. Fill the jars with 1 oz of simple syrup each, and then vodka. Let it infuse for at least a day. When ready, strain through a fine strainer into another jar for storage.
  • To make the cocktail, muddle two strawberries and your basil leaves in a mixing glass. Next add citron vodka, peach and apple liqueurs, simple syrup, and lime juice.
  • Shake in a shaker full of ice and pour un-strained directly into your glass. Garnish with a few leaves of basil and a strawberry.
