Purple Basil and the Tanah Gajah

When I stayed at the Chedi Club in Ubud, Bali, they served a cocktail called the Tanah Gajah.  It is the perfect summer cocktail with purple basil, which you can usually find this time of the year.  Here is my recreation.

  • 2 1/2 ounces Vodka
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce sugar syrup
  • 10 purple basil leaves, some mottled 
  • Shake
