Ingredients: 

  • 473ml (1 pint) Pink Gin
  • 711ml soda water
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (to taste)
  • 1 punnet of fresh strawberries
  • The juice of two limes
  • Ice
  • Fresh basil to garnish

Method:

  • Cut the limes into small pieces, add the sugar, place in a cocktail shaker and muddle well to help release those oils from the peel and incorporate the sugar to the juice.
  • Strain into the jug and then add half the punnet of strawberries before smashing everything together.
  • Next add the ice, gin, and the rest of the strawberries which have been sliced, along with some basil leaves.
  • Gently stir the ingredients together before topping up with the soda water. Serve in highball glasses with strawberries and basil to garnish.
