That sounds delicious. But too much sugar for me. I make what's called a Holland Razor with 2 ounces of vodka and 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice. Shake it up with ice and pour into martini glass. Sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper. Calories: 128

This is very refreshing. Instead of plain basil, I muddled some of my cinnamon basil from my garden. Very nice variation.
