Lay to rest one of history's great mysteries. Anastasia is alive and well on the cocktail roster at Caffe Boa. Muddled strawberries and herbaceous basil combine with vodka and Caffe Boa's homemade sweet and sour mix to create a bright and summery cocktail.
(recipe after the jump)
5 strawberry slices
5 basil leaves
3 oz. Skyy Vodka
1 oz. Sweet and sour mix
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberry and basil leaves together with a dash of sugar to taste. Add the sweet and sour, vodka and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass garnished with a whole basil leaf.
