Gin Basil Smash
This is the BEST DRINK on a hot summer night! Super refreshing!!!
Servings: 1 servings
Total Time: 5 minutes
2 cups Hendrick's gin
3 (fully squeezed) lemons [we have often used more depends on how much juice they give]
2 (cut up) lemons for inside the pitcher [you can also use more lemons for optional garnish]
2 cans of sprite [less and less of sprite as the night goes on LOL]
1/4 cup of simple syrup
12 (muddled) basil leaves
1. Muddle your basil, add all your ingredients above, stir. I make a pitcher, but with each glass poured I will fill up a cocktail shaker with ice, add the drink mix, and shake well making it nice and cold!!! I tend to muddle the basil and leave it in the glass…. But if you don’t want green teeth, you’ll want to strain it and put a couple whole basil leaves in the cup!!
2. Wet the top of your glass and rim the glass with sugar. Put some ice cubes in the cup, pour, and serve!!
3. You can also (optionally) garnish with lemons , basil, sugar cubes, and strawberries.
