Sometimes Mondays call for a little somethin’ somethin’.
This cocktail is super easy, a little bit elegant, and the perfect way to decompress.
Leela Cyd’s version of a gin swizzle over on Design Sponge was the inspiration behind this recipe. I’ve changed the sweetener up and added some muddled basil as I think both highlight the gin.
1 ounce lime juice & slice for garnish
1/2 teaspoon honey
Few sprigs basil
2 ounces gin
Whisk together the lime and honey until the honey is dissolved. Add a few springs basil and muddle.
Shake the lime, honey, basil mixture with gin and ice
Pour into a glass, top with a few ounces of soda water and serve with a lime garnish
