Cucumber Basil Martini

Spring is coming!  I am ready, are you?  To get us in the mood (like we needed any assistance!) I thought a fresh cocktail was in order.  Try this Cucumber Basil Martini, I think you'll love it!

You need:
-2 oz. Vodka
-1/4 oz. Lemon juice
-2 Slices Cucumber
-4 Leaves of Basil
-1/2 oz. Simple Syrup (super easy to make, here's a recipe)

Muddle 3 leaves of basil and your 2 slices of cucumber in a shaker.  Add the liquid ingredients to your muddled concoction.  Shake over ice.  Pour in Martini glass, and garnish with a lemon wedge and basil leaf.

Now, go lay out on your hammock, and enjoy the day with your martini.  Go ahead!
