5 lf Basil
2 oz Gin, Plymouth
12 oz Agave syrup
34 oz Lime juice

  • quite nice, will use less lime juice next time — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Hendricks. Be sure to double strain. Lovely pale green color. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Really nice. Muddled lime wedges in place of lime juice (about the same amount of juice). Adds a nice depth of flavor. — ☆☆☆☆
