Lemon Basil G&T
Lemon basil brings a zesty zing to a classic G & T with a citrus aroma and mild anise flavour.
For one medium sized tumbler:
What you will need
- 50ml gin
- 4-6 lemon basil leaves
- 1/2 lemon for juice
- tonic water
- Place lemon juice and 4 lemon basil leaves in a cocktail shaker. Shake well.
- Add the gin and shake once more.
- Place ice into a tumbler and strain the gin. Make sure none of the basil leaves go into the tumbler.
- Top up with tonic water, and garnish with a few lemon basil leaves, or a wild bergamot flower if you have some.
