It's summer, officially, which means it's time to break out the cocktail shaker and shake up some basil vodka gimlets. I told you about this drink last summer, if you recall, but it was already almost the end of summer and you, like me, had probably already spent most of the summer drinking those pre-mixed margaritas.
This year, I'm on time: bringing you the recipe for the basil vodka gimlet just as the heat is rising into triple digits.
My job here is done.
