Gin Basil Smash


19. April 2014 by swizzzlestick

The fantastic drink Gin Basil Smash was created by Jörg Meyer, Le Lion in Hamburg. The combination of gin and basil is unbelievably good. Dear Eva, I am sure you will enjoy it!


1 bunch Fresh Sweet Basil, 50ml Gin, 4 tsp Lemon Juice, 4 tsp Sugar Syrup, garnish: sprig of Basil and Lemon Wedge


Muddle the basil in a shaker, add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Fine strain into a glass over fresh ice. Garnish with the lemon wedge and a sprig of basil.
