Cocktail of the month - The Drunken Botanist

Finally the summer has arrived and safe to say I've been lapping up the rays! So this month I've created something that is perfect for summertime drinking. I've used gin as the base spirit here but it also works very well with Vodka instead. Choose your poison and enjoy!

You'll need:

  • 40ml Gin or Vodka
  • 20ml Chambord (I've used the 20cl bottle as the vessel here)
  • A splash of orgeat syrup
  • The juice of a lemon quarter
  • 80ml Pineapple Juice
  • Fresh Basil (crush lightly in your hands first to release the flavour)

The Method:

  1. In a measuring jug, pour in all ingredients and stir.
  2. Pour into empty Chambord bottle, pop the lid on and place in the fridge for half an hour.
  3. Remove from fridge, shake hard and pop in a straw. If you're feeling fancy, garnish with some lavender.
