Looking for something good on a hot summer afternoon? You have come to the right place.
“The Basil Gin Smash” - Watch out it’s very refreshing and strong so they sneak up on you but totally worth it.
3 oz. Rob’s Mountain Gin
1 oz. Simple Syrup
half of a lemon – Quartered
Fresh Basil to taste – The more basil you use the greener the drink gets.
In a mixing tin or glass muddle the lemon and basil with simple syrup. Make sure you muddle hard to release all the oils of the lemon skin and the basil. Next add gin and ice and SHAKE. Shake until it is very cold and your arm is tired. Double strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a Basil leaf that you have slapped to open up the pores and ENJOY.
