A symphony of flavors is unveiled as you muddle fresh blueberries and basil leaves, their essence harmoniously mingling with the gin’s botanical allure. Shaken with precision, the elixir is poured into a rocks glass over ice, a masterpiece in both taste and presentation.
Blueberry Basil Smash Ingredients
60ml Angelica Blue Gin
15ml Fresh lemon juice
15ml Simple syrup
Handful of fresh blueberries
3-4 Fresh basil leaves
Basically you can use whatever fruit you have on hand. Cherries or blackberries would make great substitutions for the blueberries. No lemons? Limes or oranges would work great in the smash formula.
Don’t feel like making simple syrup? A tablespoon of agave nectar or honey will add the touch of sweetness you need. It will still work toward balancing the tartness of the lemon and the herbaceous notes of the basil.
