Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Use this basil-flavored vodka to add fresh aromatics to cocktails. Distilled from organic rye and infused with lemon, two varieties of basil, honeysuckle and lemongrass, the heady herbal notes come through first, exiting with a breeze of white flowers and citrus. USDA certified organic. (Nov 2013)
Fresh basil has a rich history in folklore (it's sweet and savory qualities given both light a dark powers in mythology) and in cuisine from around the globe. More recently, many mixologists have discovered the flavor range and taste complexity that fresh basil brings to cocktails.
With cocktail creativity in mind, we take the herbal taste experience of basil a step further. Square One Basil is infused with the organic essences of four basil varieties -- Genovese, Thai, Lemon and Sweet -- plus we add a touch of coriander, honeysuckle and lemongrass to round out the spirit and soften the finish. Try Square One Basil in Mediterranean or Asian cuisine inspired elixirs. And in the classic Bloody Mary, replace vodka with Square One Basil and never look back.
