Black Tomato Gin is a robust and powerful spirit with lots of different flavours at play. Rich dark fruits are obvious, followed by pleasant spices on the palate. The powerful fruitiness of the tomato is balanced by its own tanginess and the peppery kick of juniper.
So how do you make a cocktail with this ginny goodness?
Here's our take on the perfect Basil Smash;
• 50ml Black Tomato gin
• 1 bunch basil leaves (if in doubt as to how much, go heavy on the basil)
• 25 ml fresh lemon juice
• 15 ml sugar syrup
Place basil and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker. Gently muddle the lemon and basil “smashing” the ingredients. Add sugar syrup and gin and top up with ice. Shake vigorously (the phrase “Hulk Smash!” comes to mind).
Double strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with basil leaves.
Sip, sip, sip, enjoy!
