Gin Basil Smash

I try to create a cocktail that I will serve for the summer when we have friends over, I think this will be this year's cocktail


A jigger of Gin

a count and a half of fresh lemon juice

a count. of simple syrup

a handful of fresh basil leaves

Crushed ice

Cubed Ice



Place a few basil leaves at the bottom of a sour glass, half fill with cubed ice.

Place about 6 to 8 basil leaves at the bottom of a shaker, muddle with the back of a spoon, half fill with crushed ice, add gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup, shake and strain into prepared sour class, top off with seltzer and garnish with basil leaves.
