Gin Basil Smash From the kitchen of trey

  • put a handful of basil into a shaker (the more the better)
  • muddle the basil, pour in 2oz gin and then let sit for about 5 minutes
  • add juice from half a lemon (should be about 1/2 oz) and a 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • toss the shell of the lemon into the shaker, add ice and then shake the ever living hell out of it (key part of a “Smash”)
  • pour over ice a rocks glass (don’t strain out the basil bits)
