Mixing Tips

General

  • Start with the cheapest ingredients (the syrup) first.

Ice

  • Try to add the ice cubes into the glass by the end. Do it carefully. Otherwise, you might spill the liquid, or due to the acid of the citrus juice, you will create a lot of foam that spills over.

Glassware

  • A chilled glass keeps your drink longer and more enjoyable. Your used ice will melt slower, and the taste will stay longer.

Non Alcoholic Ingredients

  • Make sure your carbonated filler is cold and fresh.
  • Try to keep the homemade syrup constantly refrigerated. It will often have a shorter expiration than store-bought syrups.

RECIPE

Editor Recipe Notes

We adopted the recipes from Jörg Meyers’s Youtube Channel “trinkabenteuer.”

We used 200 grams of Basil, and then we blanched it. After, we used the mixer and mixed it with warm sugar syrup. We used the highest speed for blending and did this for about 2 minutes. So the syrup gets a dark green color. After, we used a sieve to strain just the liquid.

It’s an excellent way to blanch the Basil. You can get more flavor and color out of it, and because of the heat, you kill many germs on the Basil, so you also have a longer expiration time.
We found an excellent Gin that fits perfectly with the Basil Syrup.
