Edinburgh Gin has a new flavour on the market! Its Orange & Basil gin is made with sweet Valencian orange peel and fresh vapour-infused basil leaf.
The Scottish distiller claims the combination of crisp citrus and slightly savoury basil makes a great spring drink – and we’re inclined to agree!
One of its signature serves is the Orange and Basil Fizz: a zesty, thirst-quenching drink that is ideal for warmer days. It is made with gomme syrup, a sweetener containing Arabic gum which can create a smoother texture and alcohol flavour in a cocktail than sugar syrup.
Orange and Basil Gin Fizz
- 50ml Edinburgh Gin Orange & Basil
- 12.5ml fresh orange juice
- 12.5ml fresh lemon juice
- 25ml Gomme syrup
- Sparkling water
- 1 basil leaf, to garnish
Combine the gin, fresh juices and gomme syrup in a cocktail shaker. Shake and double strain into a highball glass. Add ice, top up with sparkling water, and garnish with a large basil leaf.
Edinburgh Gin Orange & Basil is available for £28 from edinburghgin.com, Amazon, Booths and John Lewis & Partners. It is also being listed with easyJet, and will be exclusive to the airline within the travel retail channel for seven months.
