Switched 240V outlet for compressor?

Is there a way or how can I put a switch on the outlet for my compressor? My compressor doesn't have an on/off switch and I could just use the breaker (both are in the garage, about 25' of cable and conduit apart) or unplug it but I'd prefer a switch. At this time I've got my new circuit wired, I've pulled a permit and I haven't scheduled the inspection yet.

Use a double pole switch and switch both hot wires.
