Ingredients needed to make a Basil Julep
2-3 large basil leaves
1/2 oz simple syrup
2-3 oz Irish whiskey (I used Bushmills)
Basil Julep Cocktail Recipe Directions
In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the basil leaves and simple syrup. Pour in the whiskey, and stir briskly one or two times. Fill glass with ice; pour over the ice, garnish with basil sprigs.
I like it a lot.
