2 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
1 bunch basil leaves (if in doubt as to how much, go heavy on the basil)
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. sugar syrup
Place basil and lemon into a cocktail shaker. Gently muddle the lemon and basil “smashing” the ingredients. Add sugar syrup and gin and top up with ice. Shake vigorously (the phrase “Hulk Smash!” comes to mind). Double strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with basil leaves. Thank you GinFoundry.
