Cocktail: Silly Goose

Silly Goose

Silly Goose

Ingredients for 2 drinks

6 oz gin (I use Right)
18 ripe gooseberries, washed
1 tb white sugar
1/3 cup chopped basil plus 2 whole sprigs basil
Club Soda


Put ice in two rocks glasses to chill
Put 12 gooseberries in shaker with sugar and chopped basil, muddle with wooden spoon
Add gin & shake
Strain into glasses.
“Pop” one gooseberry into each glass, discard skin.
Fill remainder of glass with club soda
Add remaining gooseberries and basil sprigs to garnish

This is a very light, sweet summery drink that my mother says “goes down like lemonade.” I recommend a sweet gin that is light on juniper. You can also make it with a white rum or vodka.
