Strawberry Basil Smash!

We’re excited to be carrying Tattersall’s new Rosso Gin in the shop! Tattersall released this limited edition gin last month, and they only produced about 2000 bottles of it, so you better pick one up while you have the chance!

For the base gin, Tattersall partnered with Indeed Brewing to use some of their Mexican Honey (you all know the iconic Mexican Honey Light!). Then, they added rose petal and violet as well as strawberry and raspberry to this batch. The honey brings out the floral fruitiness, producing a gin with a touch of sweetness and a lovely aroma. It screams summer, both in appearance and in flavor. 

This gin is the perfect compliment to fresh fruits and herbs. If you follow us on Instagram or shop in our store, then you must know by now about our new rooftop garden. We love to talk about it – we’re growing all sorts of herbs, fruits, and veggies up on the roof, including sweet little strawberries & more basil than we could ever use! Those two inspired this cocktail. The strawberry Basil Smash is perfect for anyone who loves fruity drinks. Here’s the recipe: 

2 oz Tattersall Rosso Gin

1 oz Lemon Juice

½ oz Simple Syrup

2 Strawberries

2 Large Basil Leaves

  1. Muddle the strawberries and basil with simple syrup in your shaker.
  2. Add lemon juice, gin, and lots of ice. Shake very well. 
  3. Serve over ice, and garnish with a sprig of basil!
