Recipe: Lady of Leisure
Sometimes the best thing to do at the end of the week is just kick back and relax. Life gets busy. Life gets hectic. Life can even get a bit tough from Monday to Friday. If you find yourself a bit frazzled, it’s time to make a drink.
Having a nicely set up home bar with every thing you need from the tools to the booze is kinda handy in these situations. You just want to be able to make a good drink without too much bother. Succeeding comes down to having the ingredients on hand, which means mixers and fresh produce also at the ready.
This drinks simplicity is a beautiful thing. A good drink is about balance and this has the perfect levels of bitter and sweet with a delicious herbal aspect from the basil. Best of all it is easily built in the glass with limited fuss and a few basic ingredients.

- 30ml Mastiha
- 5ml lime juice
- Strange Love Bitter Grapefruit
- Garnish: fresh basil
