A refreshing summer cocktail made with red bell pepper, basil, gin and lime. This recipe was inspired by Manifesto in Kansas City, MO.
1/3 of a medium red bell pepper, sliced into two-inch long strips
5 to 6 fresh basil leaves
1/2 lime, juiced
1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 to 1 teaspoons agave nectar or simple syrup
In a cocktail shaker, combine red pepper, basil and lime juice. Muddle thoroughly, until the red pepper is thoroughly smashed. It shouldn’t have any crunch left to it.
Add gin and lots of ice. Put on the lid and shake like crazy.
Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass.
Fall in love with the beautiful red bell.
