Basil Collins

Honey syrup and garden-fresh basil offer an additional layer of summery refreshment in the already cooling Tom Collins.

1 1/2 oz. dry gin (McCarthy uses NOLET’S Silver)
3 lemon wheels
1/2 oz. honey syrup (1:1)
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
3 fresh basil leaves
Ice cubes
Tools: shaker, muddler
Glass: Collins
Garnish: lemon wheel

In the base of a shaking tin gently muddle lemon wheels, honey syrup and fresh basil. Add remaining ingredients, except club soda, and shake with ice cubes. Pour into a Collins glass, top with soda and garnish.


John McCarthy, Whitehall, New York City
