I am all about a craft cocktail. Which has now made me a gin girl. The only problem about craft cocktails is that you have to get dressed up, go out and spend $12-15 per drink.
Now that’s all well and good and I love doing that but not every time I feel the need for one. So, I pulled my favorite ingredients and made my own.
Basil Gin Shandy
- 2 orange slices
- 3 sprigs of basil
- 1.25 oz gin
- 4 oz lemonade
- Soda water (optional)
Muddle orange and basil in a shaker. Add gin and lemonade. Shake vigorously. Pour over ice. Garnish with a basil leaf.
Add a splash of soda water for a fizz.
