Ingredients for A Refreshing Strawberry Gin Smash!

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 wedge lime
  • 3 fresh strawberries
  • 2 fresh basil leaves
  • 3 ounces dry gin
  • splash club soda


The Method

  • In a tall glass, muddle the sugar, a squeeze of lime juice, 2 of the fresh strawberries, and both basil leaves with a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon. Muddle long enough to allow the sugar to dissolve, about 1 minute.
  • Fill the glass with ice. Add the gin and top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with the remaining strawberry, a lime wedge, and a colorful paper straw.
