    A sip of this sweet, peppery after-dinner drink will help settle your stomach and satisfy your sweet tooth.

    What to buy: We chose Everclear 151 grain alcohol to use in our digestifs; it picks up the flavoring elements much faster than vodka.

    This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Digestifs project.


    1. 1Place basil leaves in a 1-quart glass jar with a tightfitting lid, add alcohol, cover, and let steep at room temperature, undisturbed, for 6 days.
    2. 2After 6 days, remove leaves and add rich simple syrup. Stir to combine. Store in the freezer.
