Description

Beat the heat this summer with a refreshing beverage that’s part sorbet part cocktail.  Summery Peach Basil Gin Floats have fresh muddled basil, sweet frozen peach sorbet, herbaceous gin and a fizzy topper.


Ingredients

  • 8 ounces gin
  • 1 bunch basil
  • 1 pint peach sorbet
  • 2 cans club soda or tonic water
  • optional: extra basil and peach slices for garnish

Instructions

  1. Muddle:  In each glass, muddle 3-4 basil leaves.
  2. Scoop:  Add three scoops, about 2/3 cup, peach sorbet per glass.
  3. Add Booze:  Pour 2 ounces of gin over sorbet in each glass.
  4. Top Off:  Top with soda or tonic water.

Notes

You may need to let the sorbet sit on the counter for 5 minutes to soften enough to scoop.  This part can be done in advance and then frozen in glasses or a storage container until you’re ready to serve your Peach Basil Gin Floats.
