Best of Philly

2010 Cocktail

Chick’s Caf and Wine Bar

There’s a lot of drama involved in the preparation of this gin drink vigorous smacking of fresh basil leaves to release their essences, loud clashing of ice in the shaker but the end result is a lightly fragrant (from the rose-petal-infused simple syrup) and lemony concoction that will convince even the most avid gin-haters to reconsider.
