This gimlet looks like a green juice but contains a bit of vodka and a ton of muddled fresh basil, which protects against free radicals and can help slow the aging process. Lime juice, an excellent detoxifier, adds a refreshing brightness to the mix, while maple syrup sweetens up the drink and adds minerals. If you want to make this a mocktail, simply leave out the vodka.
