The perfect summer cocktail.
It takes a little bit to prepare it at home, but it’s for sure worth it.
Try it and let us know your impressions.
I choose Plymouth Navy Strenght, for its rich flavours and for the higher alcohol volume.
Ingredients (for 1 serve):
45ml Plymouth Navy Strenght Gin
Half a lemon (for like 30 ml of fresh juice)
Basil leaf (at least 10 big leaves)
7,5 ml simple syrup (1 part water : 1 part sugar)
Cut the basil leaves before inserting them in the mixing glass, add the lemon and 15 ml of Gin and muddle. Add then the simple syrup and the remaining 30 ml of Gin, fill with ice and hard shake it.
Double strain and serve on the rocks, with a basil leaf as a garnish.
