Bohemians in a Shaker, served on Ice

Bo•he•mi•an n. A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior.

Bohemian, aka coined term for for pretty freaking awesome, and when you mix elderflower liquor, gin, basil, and lime... what you get is mind blowing awesome green goddess of a drink, with bits of basil goodness mixed in the part.

At our favorite frequented dining joint, Feast.. Doug, the owner (/completely awesome chef/wine expert/ really funny guy) has a this drink on their menu... After a pretty hot day today it was all I could think about... how yummy this would taste and what a perfect end this would make to an pretty darn good day.
If you're so inclined... the recipe is below, beware these suckers are strong, in fact this post might not even be advisable ;)


Bohemian Bicycle Martini:

Ingredients:3 sizable basil leaves
2 oz Bombay Sapphire
2 oz St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
1/4 Lime (wedge)
1 oz Club Soda

First, chill your martini glasses. This is not a drink to be had warm!

Add a handful of ice cubes to your shaker and add the liquor. In a separate glass, mash the basil and lime wedge with two ice cubes until thoroughly crushed. Pour the slurry into the shaker, shake for one minute, add club soda, and decant through strainer into your chilled martini glasses. Voila!
