Cocktail: Fresh Basil Smash (Green Table Restaurant)

We were so impressed by this drink we just had to share it with you!
Don’t miss the video …

Here are directions for one cocktail:
Combine 1 ounce of simple syrup (that’s 50/50 water & sugar) with 2-6 Fresh Basil Leaves, depending on size.
Add a few ice cubes, and muddle it in the glass until the basil breaks up.
Add juice from one lime, a handful of ice, and 2 ounces of gin.
Shake well, strain, and serve with a basil leaf garnish.

Alternate:  We used Thai Basil leaves and Lemongrass Simple Syrup and it was smashing!
