Island-themed Cocktail? Yes, Please!

June 29, 2017

Guests at the June 14 Sunset Garden Party at Four Freedoms Park were treated to a specialty cocktail called “The FDR.” And let us just say that it was delicious! So much so that we asked for the recipe. You're welcome. 





Here’s how to mix it at home:


1 oz    Vodka

1½ oz Fresh lemon juice 

½ oz   Basil simple syrup   

Splash of club soda 

Basil leaf to garnish


To make the basil simple syrup: 

• Combine 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup fresh basil leaves in a small saucepan. 

• Bring to a boil, stirring continuously until sugar dissolves. 

• Simmer for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Let sit for 30 minutes. 

• Strain syrup to remove leaves and let cool.
