The classic combination of gin, lime juice and simple syrup gets a fresh-produce boost in the Cucumber, Basil & Lime Gimlet. Swap out gin for vodka, add a little lemonade and you’ve got the ideal warm-weather cocktail.
In a shaker, muddle the basil and cucumber.
Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice.
Shake well and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with a lime wedge or cucumber wheel.
