A cocktail with Limoncello served in the shadow of Jefferson’s Monticello? It’d have *have* to be called Limonti Cello!! Fresh picked basil and citrusy Sunset Hills small batch Virginia gin come together for a refreshing & savory treat.
Combine in a tall rocks glass:
3-4 basil leaves
1/4 oz simple syrup
Muddle, then add:
2 oz A. Smith Bowman Sunset Hills Small Batch Gin
1/2 oz Limoncello
1/2 oz Lime juice
scoop of ice
Shake vigorously in shaker; strain into chilled, salt-rimmed coupe. Garnish with lemon twist.
