(2) Basil Gimlet @ Rye

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

The Basil Gimlet from Rye rocked my tastebuds! Gin + lime juice + sugar + basil. It was savory and had a great mouthfeel. The bold basil flavor complemented the floral gin perfectly. Plus it was served in my favorite drinking vessel - a champagne coupe (Fact: everything tastes better when served straight up in a champagne coupe). This drink makes me want to hang out by some posh poolside in Palm Springs, surrounded by cacti and succulents and dessert as far as the eye can see, engulfed in harsh sunshine, and a pitcher of this tasty beverage.
