Faith's Strawberry Gin Smash

Muddled drinks are the hallmark of summer cocktails! Basil complements the strawberries and gin beautifully. Also consider vodka or Cachaca rum for this fruity yet powerful libation.

Prep Time: 5 minutes Yield: One cocktail


3 large hulled ripe strawberries

1 basil leaf

lime wedge

1 ounce pineapple simple syrup (or simple syrup of choice)

2 ounces gin or vodka

Club soda or tonic

Place 2 strawberries in the bottom of a cocktail glass. Add torn basil leaf and lime juice. Use muddler to mash fruit mixture. Stir in simple syrup and gin. Add ice, then top with club soda or tonic. Decorate with remaining strawberry and basil leaf.

FYI...After using many different muddlers , I discovered this high quality, inexpensive one on Amazon. I now have a new, favorite muddler!
