Smugglers Strawberry & Basil Smash
fresh basil leaves
1/2 a strawberry and a basil leaf
DescriptionThis fruity Smash cocktail is absolutely perfect for summer picnics and BBQs, and for sipping in the garden pretending you’re at Wimbledon. The combination of the fresh citrus-y Smugglers Gin, sweet strawberries and herbaceous basil is just the tonic when the sun’s out. But of course this is Scotland, so while the sun is optional, this cocktail is a must. A Smash is imperfect by definition, so you can have plenty of fun with this recipe. Sometimes rules are made to be broken, so go wild: add that extra strawberry.
METHODPour the Smugglers Gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker and add in the strawberries and basil. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until the outside of the shaker turns frosty. Double strain the Smugglers Strawberry & Basil Smash into a rocks glass. Garnish with half a strawberry and a fresh basil leaf for extra flair!
