Bartender, Category, ENG

Basil in cocktails 🤔 Everyone saw mint in cocktails, but what about basil? We definitely like this ingredient! Check bellow one of our favourite recipes – Gin Basil Smash:

Jörg Meyer invented this cocktail in 2008 in Hamburg, Germany. He is the owner of Bar Le Lion and Boilerman. 


  • 50ml Gin  
  • 1 bunch basil leaves (never too much) 
  • 25ml fresh lemon juice 
  • 15ml sugar syrup 

Place basil and lemon into a cocktail shaker and smash. Add sugar syrup and gin and top up with ice. Shake it and our into a glass. Garnish with basil leaves. Gin Basil Smash is done! 💚
