I made this refreshing twist on a classic gin & tonic last week and wanted to share the recipe here! Ever since we planted our own basil, I’ve been loving finding new ways to use it. So today I’m sharing this how I incorporated basil into my favorite cocktail. See the recipe above!
- Calories aside, Justin and I actually prefer diet tonic water. And yes, it’s actually a thing! Something about it tastes a little different than regular tonic, and we really like it.
- These are my favorite glasses to use for cocktails because they’re a) plastic, so really good for outdoors b) super affordable and c) a great size for most cocktails. We received them as a wedding gift and still use them weekly!
- Some of my favorite gins are: Tanqueray, Bombay Sapphire, Wild Roots (try their infused gin, too!), and Hendricks. If you’re feeling decadent, try Monkey 47!
Thanks for reading, and let me know if you try this recipe!
