Basil Gin Smash

After a ridiculously crazy and amazing weekend we needed a good cocktail to help us unwind. This gin cocktail was up to the task and pleased all parties involved. It was fresh and sassy. I loved it.
Basil Gin Smash
(from the Mother Unit)
1 1/4 ounces gin
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
12 large fresh basil leaves (plus more for garnish)
1. Add ice, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and basil to a cocktail shaker. Shake like the dickens!
2. Strain into an ice filled glass. Garnish with basil sprig.
