60 ml (2 oz) Beluga vodka
7.5 ml (.25 oz) Dirty Sue premium olive juice
15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice
1 basil leaf
1 small slice of garlic
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
Muddle the tomatoes in a mixing glass, the add the remaining ingredients, reserving one of the basil leaves for a garnish. Add ice and shake well for 10 to 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass through a fine-mesh strainer, and add the basil-leaf garnish.
gaz sez: I used a different vodka and different olive juice, but this one worked real well despite my sloppiness. I love savory drinks that aren’t Bloody Marys. Nice one, Eric!
