This refreshing basil cocktail is a summery spin on the Tom Collins! It’s tart and bubbly, with fresh herbs and cucumber.
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the basil leaves. Add the cucumber slices and muddle again.
- Add the gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice and fill the shaker with ice. Shake for 15 seconds until cold.
- Strain the drink into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with soda water and garnish with additional cucumber slices and basil.
