Basil, Ginger and Mint Cocktails

  • BASIL, GINGER AND MINT COCKTAILS

    Summer is definitely here in the UK at the moment – it was 32 degrees today and I don’t think I can cope much longer with it! Anyway, I decided to make some summery drinks for the hot weather, and even remembered to photo them so that I could share the recipe with you all! I hope you like them, and hopefully this will be the first of many recipes on my blog over the summer…

    Ingredients (for one): 

    • Ginger beer
    • Gin (one shot)
    • Basil (a handful)
    • Fresh ginger
    • Mint (a handful)
    • Lime (one slice)
    • Crushed Ice (lots of it!)

    Method:

    1. In a tumbler glass, add the crushed ice
    2. Finely slice the basil, ginger and mint and add to the glass
    3. Using a muddler, crush the ingredients in the glass
    4. Add a shot of gin
    5. Fill the glass with ginger beer
    6. Garnish with a slice of ginger, lime and a sprig of mint!

    Tips:

    • Don’t want alcohol? Simply skip out step 4 – it will still taste equally as good!
    • If you don’t have a muddler, use the flat end of a rolling pin instead
    • Use lots and lots of basil! It tastes really good in the drink, and I’m sad I didn’t use as much as I should have!

    much as I should have!
