BASIL SMASH - Distileria Magura Zamfirei


We have a surprise-riddle for you: what do you think you can do with a handful of basil, lemon, sugar syrup, egg white and GIN NO. 4 from Magura Zamfirei Distillery?
In the context of hundreds of years of mixed drinks, it only recently became a phenomenon, a “Modern Classic”, an exceptional cocktail, prepared all over the world. With an attractive shade of neon green, the classic Basil Smash has a refreshing taste, suitable for summer. The key ingredient… fresh basil and, obviously, GIN NO 4 from Magura Zamfirei Distillery.
This is a cocktail that fits perfectly on a sweltering summer day.
When you drink it, you dream with your eyes open how you jump headfirst into an emerald lake.
