For a while now, Kevin and I have been doing a little thing we call “Cocktail of the Week.” We pick a drink -sometimes a classic like a Gimlet or Old Fashioned, sometimes a concoction all our own- and learn to make it properly.
Tonight we’re hosting a little get together to watch V for Vendetta with a couple of friends (Remember, Remember, the
fifth eighth of November), so we decided to find a cocktail to commemorate the movie.
Recipe from The Daily Meal
1 ½ ounces vodka
1 ½ ounces brandy
¼ ounce Pernod
¾ ounce bitters
6 basil leaves, plus a sprig for garnish
Add the vodka, brandy, pernod, bitters, and basil leaves into a shaker loaded with ice. Shake until condensation forms around the shaker. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice and garnish with a basil sprig.
