Basil Smash

Refreshing and herbal, the NOLET'S Silver Basil Smash is an easy to build classic. The fruit and floral botanicals are luscious with basil and citrus, much like a garden party in a glass. 

1.25 oz NOLET’S Silver Gin
0.75 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Lemon Juice

Raspberry French 75

A vibrant variation of the French 75 has a bit of raspberry to propel the fruit-forward effervescent. The tart sweetness is controlled by the cocktail maker, we suggest starting with the proportions below and adding syrup as needed.    

1.25 oz. NOLET’S Silver Gin
0.75 oz. Lemon Juice
0.5 oz. Raspberry Simple Syrup
3 Raspberries
Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Pour NOLET’S Silver, lemon juice and raspberry syrup into a mixing glass with ice. Shake well. Strain into a Champagne flute. Carefully top with Champagne and garnish with a raspberry skewer.

Raspberry Simple Syrup:
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup Water

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and raspberries break down. Cool and refrigerate before using. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.


Winter Lemonade

Our wonderfully simple, luxurious Winter Lemonade takes advantage of the sweet winter crop of Meyer Lemons and, combined with NOLET'S botanicals in NOLET'S Silver, makes a most delicious result.

1.25 oz. NOLET'S Silver Gin
1 oz. Meyer Lemon Juice
4 oz. Filtered Water
1 Tablespoon Bakers (Caster) Sugar
Lemon Zest

Combine all ingredients, except water, in a mixing glass with ice. Shake and pour contents directly into a highball glass. Top with filtered water and Meyer lemon zest.

For a Batch (to make 8-10 servings)
1 1/4 cups NOLET'S Silver Gin

1 cup Meyer Lemon Juice
3 cups Filtered Water
4 Tbsp. Bakers (Caster) Sugar

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher or drink dispenser with lemon wheels and ice. Check sweetness and adjust accordingly. A large, dense ice block melts slower and dilutes the cocktail less.
