Strawberry Basil Gimlet

Gin is not the standard go to drink for many people, but I find it crisp and refreshing! I have converted many of my non gin drinking friends, by suggesting they try a gimlet, which is essentially gin and lime juice. This gimlet is full of juicy ripe strawberries and fresh basil which adds the most incredible flavor to the cocktail.


  • 4 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 large handfuls of ice
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil

This recipe is to make a small pitcher and can be altered to make individual glasses. I make the cocktails in batches and shake in a cocktail shaker then drain into the pitcher, this mixes the flavors really well and keeps the drink ice cold.

Top drink off with a sliced strawberry and colorful straw, perfect for an outdoor summer party!
