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
3 lemon wheels
1/2 oz. honey syrup (1:1)
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
3 fresh basil leaves
Tools: shaker, muddler
Glass: Collins
Garnish: lemon wheel

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