Basil Smash:

Basil Smash:

50ml Gin

1 bunch basil leaves (if in doubt as to how much, go heavy on the basil)

25ml fresh lemon juice

15ml sugar syrup

Place basil and lemon 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.



Fresh fruit, sparkling wine, and a splash of cranberry juice – what more could you ask for? The Royal Treatment is exactly as it sounds – the perfect cocktail for those days you need to treat yourself.


Build in a stemless wine glass. 

Garnish with kiwi slices (skin removed), berries, and a mint leaf.


1 ½ oz Empress 1908

3 oz white cranberry juice

sparkling wine





  • ½ pound rhubarb, chopped
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 1 long strip of lemon or orange peel


  • Juice of ½ a lime, plus thinly sliced lime for garnish
  • 2 ounces ice cold gin
  • 2 ounces dry white vermouth
  • 2 ounces Rhubarb Syrup
  • Dash of bitters (Peychauds is my favorite)


  1. Make the syrup: Combine rhubarb, sugar, water and peel in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then lower heat and cook until rhubarb is broken down and tender, 15 – 20 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture through a strainer set over a bowl to let the syrup run through. Stir gently to expedite the process, but try not to push too hard or the solids will cloud the syrup. Cool before using. Refrigerate for a up to week or two.
  3. Combine ingredients for cocktail in a shaker with ice cubes. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with lime wheel.


  • The rhubarb syrup recipe will yield more than enough for 4 drinks. Double the batch for a party.
  • Stir extra syrup into sparkling water for a non-alcoholic cocktail or pour over fresh strawberries and yogurt.
  • If you prefer, switch out the gin for tequila or vodka.
