Recipe

Green Goddess
This wonderful drink is perfect for the summertime. Neyah White of Nopa in San Francisco, who created it, always uses Genevese basil because other varieties of basil can augment the licorice flavors.

5 fresh basil leaves
1½ ounces Square One Cucumber Organic vodka
½ ounce simple syrup
½ ounce fresh lime juice
¼ ounce absinthe
1 sprig of fresh thyme

Muddle the basil in a cocktail shaker until all the leaves are bruised. Add the vodka, simple syrup, lime juice, absinthe, and thyme sprig. Fill the shaker with ice and shake hard. Strain the drink into a chilled cocktail glass. Shake the thyme sprig dry, then use it as a garnish. Serve.
