INGREDIENTS

Makes 1

  • 10- 12 basil leaves 
  • 60ml Jin Môr

  • 30ml Lime juice

  • ½ tsp agave (to taste)

  • Ice

  • + lime/ basil to garnish

Celebrate St David’s Day with this delicious take on a  gin smash using Jin Môr. Peppery basil, refreshing lime, served over ice for the perfect aperitif. A bright cocktail as we edge closer to spring.

Chill your glass in the freezer. 

Muddle the basil leaves in a cocktail shaker or use a wooden spoon or even a pestle and mortar. The more muddling the more verdant the drink will be.  Add the jin, the lime and the ice and shake well. Taste and add the the agave, ½ tsp or more. Shake again. Add ice to the chilled glass. Fine strain the cocktail  into the glass.  Garnish with a baby basil leaf and a slice of lime.
