Image of Summer : Lemon Basil Martini Drink

Keep your summer cocktail simple and refreshing with few ingredients and a premium liquor. Lemon basil martini is a great summer sipper. Cocktail Recipe is very simple; Vodka, add a splash of lemon and a sprig of basil for a taste of summer.

Vodka flavor plays an important role when you are using few ingredients for the mix. Which Vodka flavor to choose? For summer cocktail any Citrus or any sour Fruit flavor vodka would be perfect. For this Cocktail I am going to use Smirnoff Lime flavor vodka.


  • 50 ml Smirnoff Vodka
  • 15 ml Fresh lemon juice
  • 15 ml Sugar syrup
  • 4 Basil leaves

Garnish: A Basil leaf & Lemon slice
Glass: Martini Glass

How to prepare Lemon Basil Martini cocktail recipe

  • Add Lemon juice, syrup & Basil leaves and Ice in a shaker, stir nicely.
  • Add Vodka later to the mix and stir or shake
  • Ice will bruise the basil leaves and release its oil, which will add a nice flavor to martini
  • Serve in a chilled martini glass


Like all martini's we recommend using a nice martini glass. The Midi Cocktail Glass H34CM would go great with this summer cocktail.
