My Summer 2014 Cocktail

This delicious variation on a greyhound (vodka and grapefruit juice) was created as I was culling the overgrown herbs from my pots outside. This is purple basil. It's amazing how adding a sprig really rounds out the flavor of this crisp summer cocktail -- sweet, fresh and smooth. Bonus: it's pretty!

As my other herbs finish out the summer, I'll be experimenting with more flavor combinations. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Girl, you KNOW I am trying this one!
    Looks BEAUTIFUL...and one cannot go wrong with a greyhound!
    Love you and your yummy ideas!

  2. Never seen this form of Basil.....hummm. The drink sounds really refreshing! Hope you are having a great summer.
