12 Months of Cocktails: August

Im the lead up to my trip I thought I could have a cocktail the night before my flight to get me a little excited about my girls trip. It was nice I can’t say Ive had much gin and if I have I must have had in in a cocktail mixed with other types of alcohol. So this should be interesting…..



2 Basil Leaves

1/2 Lemon Muddled

1/2 Oz Simple Syrup

Dash Orange Bitters

2 Oz Gin


Add 1 basil leaf, lemon syrup, bitters, gin and ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake to chill. Strain into a coupe and garnish with the remaining basil leaf.


This was a unique cocktail Ive never thought to try basil in anything other than pasta or pizza. I was a little curious. This was a sour faced cocktail I did do a little sour pucker when trying this. I seriously can’t name a time Ive ever drank gin which was probably not the smartest thing. Drinking a cocktail with an alcohol Ive never really had (If i had I don’t remember) before so I didn’t really enjoy this cocktail. Its more for the gin drinkers out there who are bit citrus fans I think. AGAIN my dumbass didn’t capture my creation! Sorry guys.
