Mama D’s Basil Cocktail

If green beer isn’t your thing on this St. Patrick’s Day, your taste buds might get lucky with this refreshing cocktail! The Barrister’s Mother-in-Law introduced this cocktail to the family last summer. Like all great cocktails, it has been modified by each person in the family, this is the Barristers take on the recipe.

1.5oz Uncle Val’s Gin
3/4oz St. Germain
1/2oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Barspoon Simple Syrup
5 Basil Leaves

Add St. Germain, lemon juice, simple syrup, and basil leaves in your shaker. Muddle the basil. Add Gin & ice. Shake until cold & pour into your favorite cocktail glass.

The original recipe calls for this concoction to be topped off with club soda and includes cucumber; the Uncle Val’s adds enough cucumber flavor for the Barrister and the Barrister sees no point in time watering down a perfectly good drink.
