The Gin Basil Smash was created in the summer of 2008 by Jorg Meyer from Le Lion in Hamburg, Germany and quickly spread to other German bars, and eventually won Best New Cocktail at the 2008 Tales of the Cocktails Spirits Awards. The drink was inspired by the Whiskey smashes that Jorg Meyer would occasionally drink whilst in New York.
At Andronis Exclusive we believe in using the best quality products to produce wonderful and refreshing cocktails for the summer season. This is the first year the Gin Basil Smash features on our cocktail list but we are sure this will become a success for our guests. With the simplicity and ingenious use of the fresh flavours it is obvious to see why this cocktail is special enough to feature on the Andornis Exclusive Cocktail Menu.
Can you imagine anywhere else you would prefer to come and relax and indulge in freshly made quality cocktails by fully trained bar tenders, served at your sun bed with an esquite view overlooking the cadera.
