Who needs crowded clubs and luxurious yachts to throw a party? Having fun among strangers is definitely not our thing! And so this is a private deal. This summer party needs no beach, tan or sun. No bathing suits or casual jeans. It doesn’t even need a swimming pool, or big car and balloons.This summer party has a theme though, and that would be “finding something special”! The venue? A no ordinary place to party. The time? Early in the morning. Dress code? Nothing boring! The only thing we need is each other, friends among friends and a guest, a Special guest! A bottle of Belvedere extravagant Vodka, an old friend that surely knows how to party.
A unusual party, that differs from others also needs a unique cocktail.. A cocktail with a twist. Cranberry basil vodka gimlet! There is one thing I love about cocktails (besides their taste), the way different ingredients mix and match! Just like this party, the place, the clothes, us. Everything and everyone owns a unique status and personality, but in some peculiar way we manage to relate. Everything/ Everyone can get along as long as there is a strong hold that exceeds the differences. In our party Belvedere Vodka is the master of success!

Crandberry Basil Lemon Gimlet
4 parts cranberry basil syrup (recipe below)
3 parts vodka
3 parts fresh squeezed lemon juice
Seltzer water to top off individual glasses
Stir together all the ingredients into a pitcher filled with ice cubes until cold. Strain into individual glasses, filling them up about 3/4 full. Top off with seltzer water and garnish with basil sprigs.
Cranberry Basil Syrup
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
Zest from one lemon
1 1/2 pint cranberries
2 cups packed fresh basil sprigs
In a medium saucepan, stir together all the ingredients over medium heat until the sugar has melted. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat a little and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
Strain the contents into a bowl, pressing hard against the sieve, then discard the solids. After it’s cooled, cover the syrup and store it in the refrigerator until cold.
