The GBC (Gin, Basil, Cucumber)


  1. 3 cucumber slices
  2. 3 basil leaves
  3. ½ tbsp sugar (or ½ tbsp of simple syrup)
  4. 1 ounce gin
  5. lime juice (to taste)
  6. ½ cup crushed ice
  7. ½ cup tonic water


Roll two basil leaves together, slicing them into smaller pieces.
Add sugar (or simple syrup) to glass, along with 1 ounce of gin, stirring until dissolved.
Add two cucumber slices and two sliced basil leaves, muddle 5-10 times.
Add lime juice to taste (I used about a teaspoon).
Add ½ cup crushed ice and ½ cup tonic water.
Make a cut halfway through your last cucumber slice, placing it in the rim of the glass along with a basil leaf for garnish.
