When we go to Boston we love to stay in Back Bay. One of our favorite places to grab a drink is Via Matta. They make the best, and we mean THE BEST, basil lime gimlet ever. It is refreshing and summery and the basil actually adds this incredible savory flavor that balances out the sweetness from the lime. We love to replicate this drink at home as it is truly one of our favorite summer drinks. We are not going to give you measurements for this one but just the ingredients. We make it a little bit differently every time and we usually don’t measure when it comes to drinks…we do, however, feel strongly that a really good cocktail does not taste of alcohol but rather the flavors that enhance it. This can be a little deceiving because they go down pretty smooth! Can we also give a huge shout out to Tito’s Handmade Vodka?! Have you read this guy’s story? Incredible. Small batch vodka out of Austin. Our new favorite.
