|A sprig of fresh mint, plus more for garnish|
|A couple of Basil leaves|
|1/2 a Lime cut into wedges, plus additional for garnish and rimming the glass|
|Tablespoon of Simple Syrup (equal parts water and sugar heated until the sugar dissolves)|

In a cocktail shaker, mull (smash) the mint, basil and lime. Pour in the simple syrup and vodka, then fill the rest with ice and shake well.
