One of our favorite refreshing drinks of the summer. It can be made with raspberries or strawberries- either is delicious! The basil adds a savory twist to the wild raspberry balsamic and the flavours meld together perfectly. Don’t miss out on this summer drink!
2 oz gin
1 oz Olive Us Cascadian Wild Raspberry White Balsamic
1/2 oz lime juice
4-6 fresh raspberries (or 2-3 strawberries)
4 leaves basil, plus garnish
1 oz sparkling water (optional)
Lime Rimmer (optional):
Zest of 1/2 lime
2 Tbsp sugar
On a small plate, zest half a lime and combine with sugar. Rim a glass and fill with ice. In a shaker muddle the raspberries, basil, balsamic, lime juice, and gin. Add ice and shake. Strain over the prepared glass and top with sparkling water if desired. Garnish with basil. Sip and enjoy!
