Strawberry, Basil & Shiraz Gin Smash

A delicious cocktail that's fresh, simple, fun and summery so I’ve decided to go with something fruity, using fresh strawberries, lime and basil which goes really nicely with @fourpillarsgin Shiraz Gin, which gives the cocktail a beautiful bright pink colour and flavour. It’s a fun one to make for summery nights and sunset drinks for yourself or with friends for a fun dinner party.


  • 4 strawberries
  • 1 stalk of basil, 1 leaf reserved for the garnish
  • 30ml (1 shot of simple syrup)
  • 60ml (2 shots) of @fourpillarsgin Shiraz Gin
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup of ice

Watch the process




  1. Remove the tops from your strawberries and place into a cocktail shaker with the simple syrup and basil leaves. Use a muddler to crush all the ingredients together until you get a fine pulp.
  2. Add your gin and lime juice and ice and close the lid and shake till chilled.
  3. Strain (or double strain with a sieve if you hate pulp) into a martini glass.
  4. Garnish by placing a basil leaf into the centre of the drink.
  5. Enjoy!
