CUCUMBER BASIL SMASH


Lunch


INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup basil microgreens (or 8 large basil leaves)

8 thin slices of cucumber

2 tbsp simple syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)

2 shots of gin

1/2 lemon juiced

Crushed ice

Tonic Water

Granulated sugar for rim


INSTRUCTIONS

Make a sugar rim on the glass of your choice by dipping the rim of the glass in water and then quickly into sugar lightly sprinkled on a flat plate.

Add basil leaves and cucumber in a metal cocktail shaker and gently muddle for just a second to release the aromas.

Add the simple syrup, gin, lemon juice and ice then shake vigorously for about 30 seconds (*until shaker is frosted).

Fill your sugar rim glass with ice to the top and strain the cocktail into the glass.

Top with a splash of tonic water, garnish with basil leaves and/or a slice of cucumber and enjoy!
