Cocktail of the Month: Basil Smash


About once a decade a cocktail comes along that takes over a position in my Top 5 favorite cocktails.

…the Basil Smash is that drink!

Let Angus teach you how to make (and sell) this drink and thank me later!!

Watch, mix, taste, enjoy!,

    Definitely a unique and beautiful cocktail for summer. Can’t wait to make this at my next get together.

    Looks like I will be stopping off on the way home to pick up some fresh Basil.  Can’t wait to see what next month’s cocktail will be.  Out of curiosity, what are the other cocktails in your top 5?

      My top 5 (order depends on mood): Tommy’s Margerita, Negroni, Basil Smash, Old Fashioned and (recently) a “212”

    This drink is very similar to one of my house cocktails, but in addition to all the ingredients, I added becherovka and it really adds some spice to it that leaves you starving for more!
