Gin is an herbaceous liquor infused with juniper berries, lemon and other botanicals. It’s a little pungent straight up, but when you combine it with lemon juice, club soda and sugar, you create a refreshing cocktail that goes down easy.

For the sugar component, this recipe uses smoked simple syrup steeped with fresh basil leaves. You could also try other herbs, such as rosemary or mint along with lemon rind.
