Crisp & Clean: The GBC

A refreshing concoction of gin, basil, and cucumber, The GBC is likely to become your go-to cocktail this summer. To further enhance the drink’s freshness, the recipe also calls for lime juice (we recommend fresh-squeezed) and tonic water, which complement the gin quite well. Slicing the basil leaves before you toss them into your cocktail glass helps release maximum flavor. Before you serve, garnish with a cucumber slice and basil leaf. While the recipe may seem like an unusual assortment of ingredients, the end result is a crisp, clean summer cocktail that perfectly quenches the thirst of parched sunbathers.
