Ah, Summer… The best time of the year (bar Christmas, of course, where you can stuff your face with unlimited amounts of pigs in blankets without any worries for your arteries). Now that it’s in full swing, we want to round up our favourite alternative cocktail to your usuals, you know, Gin & Tonic, Pimm’s, Pornstar Martini – we wanted to bring something real special to the table. Something you can enjoy whilst watching the Wimbledon Final in the summer sun…

So here it is, our Strawberry Smash….

Ingredients

35ml Gin

25ml Lime Juice

1 teaspoon Sugar

8 Basil Leaves

4 Strawberries

Finishing Touches

Directions 

  1. Combine strawberries, basil leaves and the sugar into a cocktail shaker. Muddle into a purée.
  2. Add the Gin and lime juice.
  3. Top up with a hand full of ice.
  4. Seal the shaker and give it a good shakey shake for 10-15 seconds.
