Blackberry Basil Smash

Blackberry Basil Smash

  • Author: Elyse Villa
  • Yield: 1 drink 1x


  • 6 blackberries
  • 3 basil leaves
  • .5oz simple syrup
  • .5oz lemon juice
  • 2oz gin
  • Club soda


  1. In a shaker, muddle the blackberries and basil with the simple syrup, until the berries are broken up and ‘juicy’.
  2. Add the lemon juice, gin, and ice to the shaker, and shake until cold.
  3. Strain into a glass with fresh ice (the blackberries will try and get in the way of straining, so I recommend using a fine-mesh strainer instead of the built-in shaker strainer.)
  4. Top with club soda.
