Worked from home today, which meant an opportunity to take the dog on two long walks and get in a good workout. I felt like the most refreshing ginandtonic possible was in order. The pepper, basil and mint were all from our garden. It's probably be optimal to double strain this, but I didn't bother.
.5oz St. Elder
.75oz bradley's kina tonic syrup
2 sprigs mint
Small slice fresh green hot pepper (I used dragon cayenne)
Dozenish mint leaves
Sprig of basil (6ish leaves)
Grated lime zest
Juice of 1/4 lime
Muddle the hell out of everything but the lime juice. Then add ice and shake. Strain into ice filled tall glass. Top with soda - give a quick stir.
