A bright and tangy mix of gin, lemon and aromatic herbs, combine all together to make this refreshing Gin Lemon!
Gin Lemon is such a classic, evergreen cocktail. When I first ventured into the cocktail world, gin was the only booze I could handle without having a super bad headache the next day.
Many years *and bottles of gin* later, I refined my love for this spirit, and stepped slightly forward from the classic gin & lemon combo, and that's when this Gin Lemon with Thyme and Basil was born.
I know we're slowly getting through the cold season and perhaps Mulled Wine would be more appropriate.
But I still crave summery refreshing cocktails every now and then ( even though right now is snowing outside!), and this aromatic gin lemon is always a favorite choice.
The best part is, you don't need to be a fancy barman or mixologist to put it together, all you need is 4 simple ingredients, and it comes together in a snap!
So next weekend, forget about the cold weather out there, and cheer on this delicately aromatic thirst-quenching Gin Lemon with Thyme and Basil - You'll love every sip of it!
