Happy bank holiday weekend! To celebrate (I use that term loosely) the end of summer weekend and to take advantage of the extra day off, what better time to make yourself a lil’ cocktail. This gin basil smash is very easy to make and we managed to whip it up on the spot with ingredients we had in the kitchen after a little bit of Sunday telly inspiration. Normal kitchen ingredients are good news when the cocktail making mood hits you out of the blue.
- 2 shots gin
- 1 shot lemon juice
- ½ shot simple syrup
- 8 basil leaves
- (per drink)
- Muddle 8 basil leaves gently.
- Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
- Pour over ice & garnish with basil.
As always, I love reading your comments and they’re always appreciate them. Have you tried a gin basil smash? 🙂
