Posted by Alayne Gardner-Carimi on

This Fig Basil Vodka Smash is a flavorful, fun, and super easy summer cocktail. It's sweet, earthy and excitingly unexpected.

½ cup basil leaves, plus sprigs for garnish (see notes) 
2 oz vomFASS Fig Balsamic Star
1 oz lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 oz honey (or preferred sweetener)
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
4 ounces vodka
tonic water

In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the basil, vomFASS Fig Balsamic Star, honey and salt.
Add in vodka and stir to combine well. 
Allow the mixture to sit for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
Add ice and shake. 
Fill 4 highball glasses with ice.
Strain the mixture into glasses.
Top with tonic water. 
Stir, garnish with more fresh basil and enjoy responsibly.

Note: Purple Basil is shown; however, green basil will work just as well.
