Smugglers Strawberry & Basil Smash
Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Strawberry And 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!
