½ cup Water
1½ cups Basil leaves
2 tsp. Light brown sugar
½ oz & 1 tsp. Fresh lime juice
2 oz. Light rum
Basil leaves and lime wedges for garnish
Simmer water with basil leaves until reduced to 2½ tablespoons.

In a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice, combine the basil-lime syrup with light rum and ½ ounce fresh lime juice. Shake.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with basil and lime.
Ginger ale may be the classic choice for this drink, but substitute it with coke if you don’t like its flavor!
