hand crafted established 2005
The originator of this cocktail first called it the Gin Pesto, so if you like bright green herbal flavours, this one’s for you. You can’t really overdo the basil in this, but you can underdo it, so be generous. The balance between sharpness and sweetness is perfectly tempered by the gin, basil and depth of the Original Pick-Me-Up.
Give the basil a good beating in a mixing vessel, add all the other ingredients and some ice. Stir well and strain into a glass of your choice, over ice.
