The gin and tonic is one of the most classic cocktails to ever grace this earth, and the addition of basil and lemon creates a wonderfully refreshing drink for lazy afternoons.
Pour the lemon juice, basil leaves, and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake well to bruise the basil.
Add in the gin and shake again.
Strain into two glasses. Add more ice (if desired) and top with tonic. Garnish with basil and a lemon twist. Serve immediately and enjoy!
