Genovese Martini

1 1/2 oz Botanivore Gin

1/2 oz Aqua Perfecta Basil Eau De Vie

1 oz blanc vermouth

The Genovese variety of basil we use in our Aqua Perfecta Basil Eau De Vie originated in Genoa, which lies on Italy’s Mediterranean coast. A port city, Genoa bustles with art, culture, and visitors eager to experience la dolce vita. This recipe highlights the sweet basil with blanc vermouth, which makes for a surprisingly supple drink that tastes wonderfully fresh. If you’ve ever wished for a Martini-style cocktail that felt right for summer afternoons by the sea, your three coins in the fountain weren’t wasted. To mix, add all ingredients to a mixing glass, then fill with ice. Stir for 30 seconds, strain into a coupe and garnish with a basil leaf. Cin cin!
