1/3 of a bell pepper, sliced into two-inch long strips
1/4 of a hot pepper
6 fresh basil leaves
Juice of ½ a lime
1 ½ oz. gin
1 tsp simple syrup
In a cocktail shaker, combine pepper, basil, lime juice, and hot pepper. Muddle thoroughly, until the red pepper is thoroughly smashed. It shouldn’t have any crunch left to it.
Add gin and a good amount of ice. Put the lid on and shake.
Strain and pour over ice in a chilled glass with a salted rim and a hot pepper garnish.
