Make your own sweet Thai basil smash cocktail, invented by the folk at Rosa's Thai cafe in London. All you need is an egg white, lemon juice, Thai basil, sugar syrup and a lot of booze.



  • gin 40ml (Rosa’s uses Portobello Road gin infused with a pinch of saffron)
  • sugar syrup 20ml
  • Mandarin Napoleon liqueur 15ml
  • lemon juice 25ml
  • egg white
  • Thai basil a few leaves
  • ice


  • Step 1

    For each cocktail, muddle everything together in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, then shake really well and strain into a tumbler over fresh ice. 

  • Step 2

    Add extra basil and a slice of lemon to serve.
