Dave Arnold's Thai Basil Daiquiri

At Booker and Dax in New York, Dave Arnold freezes the basil leaves with liquid nitrogen and muddles them to a matcha-like powder before adding the sweets and spirits. This home version uses a blender instead.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
