Do you fancy a delicious fruity cocktail from the comfort of your own home? Try our basil berry bash cocktail recipe!
- 1 cup blackberries and / or blueberries
- 6-8 basil leaves, removed from stems, plus more to garnish

Place berries, basil, lime juice, and honey into a cocktail shaker and muddle together by pressing down on the fruit and herbs lightly with a muddler or spoon and giving a few gentle twists. You should see juice squirting out of the blackberries.
Pour Three Basil Gin into cocktail shaker.
Add ice to the shaker and shake until chilled and well combined.
Fill two glasses with crushed ice.
Strain blackberry-basil mixture into the two glasses, or if you prefer to enjoy the bits of blackberries and basil that are a result of the muddling, don’t use a strainer when transferring to cocktail glasses.
Top each cocktail with soda water and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
Garnish with fresh basil leaves.
Lastly (and most importantly!), enjoy your refreshing basil berry bash cocktail!
