If you're wondering what to do with your leftover basil plant after you've made your weekly spag bol, look no further than a gin basil smash!

The gin basil smash is a no-fuss, super simple, yet utterly delicious cocktail that you can make in minutes. Its a gorgeously fragrant modern classic that uses the peppery flavours of the basil to perfectly complement our Queen Cleo London Dry botanicals.


  • Queen Cleo London Dry 50ml

  • 25ml Lemon juice

  • 15ml sugar syrup

  • Bunch basil leaves


Add the basil and lemon juice to a shaker and really muddle (smash!)

Add the sugar syrup and ice to the shaker, shake and strain into ice filled rocks glass and garnish with basil leaf.

If you prefer, you can double strain for no basil-bits with a fine cocktail strainer.

Don't fancy making your own cocktails? Did you know The Little Gin & Rum Company can come to you? Whether you're looking for a small private garden party bar, or something larger for a corporate event, get in touch - we have flexible packages to suit every budget.
