Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails Based On The Starters From Pokemon Red/Blue

#003: Venusaur

The final evolution of the Bulbasaur cocktail has finally bloomed. The lush green leaves of the Pokemon are represented here with basil, which adds a pleasantly savory undertone to the entire drink. As far as preparation, all you'll need to do to make the Venusaur is to muddle a handful of basil leaves along with the mint, then garnish with a basil leaf and edible flowers (if you have them. I don't.) See? It's not that hard. This drink is best enjoyed on the porch, while absorbing light so that you can use Solarbeam on the next turn.

TL;DR VERSION

Muddle a handful of mint and basil leaves in a glass with fine sugar. Pour 1.5oz gin and 3/4 oz cilantro infused simple syrup into a cocktail shaker and stir with ice. Pour into the glass, cover with soda water, and garnish with a basil leaf.
