Drinks We Love: Basil Lemontini at Poste

I tend to be wary of cocktails with cute “-tini” suffixes, but Poste’s Basil Lemontini is a delicious exception. Basil-infused house-made lemonade is mixed with Ketel One Citroen and a splash of sparkling wine for a light, refreshing drink that still packs a little punch. Served in a frosty glass, it’s the perfect libation for a summer evening on the restaurant’s shady patio.
