    Gin Basil Smash

    Looking like you have blitzed Kermit the Frog, the Gin Basil Smash is a relatively new cocktail, an infant in the world of mixology. Created July 2008 by Joerg Meyer, owner and bartender of  Le Lion Bar de Paris in Hamburg the Gin Basil Smash is his signature cocktail and was originally called Gin Pesto. The recipe is simple and for very little effort you can be sipping a delicious cocktail in your garden full of homegrown basil.

    ELG Gin No.1

    Elg Gin No.1 from Stone Grange Craft Distillery, north of Copenhagen in Denmark has only 3 botanicals ~ theatrical loud gasp! In this day and age how can any gin worth its botanicals have only 3 of them to boast about?
