Lemon-Basil Gin Sour

  • Preparation 5 MIN
  • Servings 1



  1. Place 6 basil leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add the cane syrup. Using a muddler, crush the basil leaves to extract as much flavour as possible.
  2. Add the gin, lemon juice, egg white and salt to the shaker. Mix. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously for 1 minute. Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with the slice of lemon and remaining basil leaf.


You can replace the egg white with a vegan emulsifier such as NOROI distillery’s vegan foamer. Just a few drops added to your cocktail will give you frothy results.
