Recipe: Strawberry, Basil and Black Pepper Cocktail

Chaya's Strawberry, Basil and Black Pepper Cocktail is the perfect refreshing Spring cocktail. Here is our interpretation.

1.5 oz. vodka of your choice
1 oz. simple syrup
3 fresh strawberries
2 basil leaves
lime wedge
fresh ground pepper

Take a chilled martini glass and run a lime wedge around the rim. Dip one side in the freshly ground pepper. Add the vodka, simple syrup, strawberries and basil leaves to a cocktail shaker and use a muddler to smash the berries and basil. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into the cocktail glass.

Serves one.
