It’s gin o’clock with Hope Distillery.
Get into the swing of summer with this strawberry, watermelon and basil gin cocktail recipe from Hope Distillery. This refreshing beverage combines fruit with basil leaves and ice for a grown-up version of a slushy.
- 60 ml Hope Gin*
- 5 strawberries
- ½ cup watermelon
- 3 basil leaves
- 1 cup ice
Blend all the ingredients together and pour into a glass. Garnish with edible flowers.
*Works well with all three Hope Gins. Use Hope Mediterranean Gin if you want to up the basil notes and Hope African Botanical Gin if you want to highlight the berries
