strawberry basil gin smash

Guess what?

That’s right, it’s Friday! Time for another original cocktail. Yipee!

Whether you’re having friends over for happy hour or just feel like a drink, this one should be it. It’s easy, the ingredients are in-season, and it’ll make even the gents feel classy. (I mean, it’s served in a coupe glass and we all know, coupe glass = classy.) Plus, I am positive you’ll love it even if you’re not a gin person.

The Strawberry Basil Gin Smash is a drink you’re going to want seconds of, so I’d recommend buying a whole punnet of strawberries. Enjoy!
