Basil Smash




Few drinks have the same fresh power like this one by mister @jrgmyr !
Here’s our take with Old Genever to start the weekend in the right way.




50 ml                   “By the Dutch” Old Genever
25 ml                    Fresh lemon juice
15 ml                     Simple syrup
1 fat bunch        Fresh basil




Place basil and lemon into a cocktail shaker. Gently muddle the lemon and basil “smashing” the ingredients. Add sugar syrup and Old Genever and top up with ice. Shake vigorously. Double strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with basil leaves.
