when it's hot outside, you need to have something to cool you off.
this is the perfect cocktail to do just that!
i didn't follow a recipe and it doesn't have a name.

here's the recipe:

muddle 3 basil leaves with 2 thin orange slices in the bottom of a shaker.
1 tbs fresh ginger syrup 
(boil equal parts water and sugar until dissolved, steep with sliced fresh ginger root, let cool or chill)
1 oz St. Germain
2 to 3 oz good vodka
then shake what ya mama gave ya!
pour into martini glass and top with chilled club soda
garnish with basil and orange curls

try it!  you won't be disappointed!
