Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

This is from the cocktail menu at Houlihan’s Restaurant. They won’t tell all ingredients or measures, so there’s some guesswork here.
When I tasted this I was pleasantly surprised at the strawberry basil combination. The basil should have been muddled more to release its oils and the drink was a little sweet for my taste, however.



  • 2 oz Plymouth gin
  • 2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz strawberry syrup
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Fresh basil leaves


  1. In a highball glass muddle the strawberries, basil and syrup
  2. Add ice
  3. Add the gin and lemon juice
  4. Stir
