From Bill Randolph


12 fresh basil leaves

4 slices lemon 

1 tablespoon honey 

3/4 cup vodka 

1/4 cup bitter orange liqueur, such as Campari 

Place the basil and lemon in a cocktail pitcher and muddle until the basil is bruised and the lemon juice is released. Add the honey and stir to dissolve. Fill the pitcher with ice, add the vodka and bitter orange liqueur and stir to combine and chill. Strain into martini glasses and serve.
