Basil-Lime Gin Mojito


  1. 4 basil leaves, plus 1 small sprig for garnishing
    2 ounces gin
    3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice, plus 2 slices for garnishing
    1 ounce simple syrup
    Chilled club soda


  1. Place the basil leaves and ice in a cocktail shaker along with the gin, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake well, bruising the basil leaves and releasing their flavor.
  2. Pour into an ice-filled glass and tuck in the lime slices. Top with club soda and a sprig of basil leaves.
