Watermelon Basil Gin Cocktail

  • Author: Hansen Distillery


Inspired by our friend Kira at Northern Style Exposure, this is a fresh way to use our Trouble Gin.


  • 2 oz Hansen Trouble Gin
  • 1 cup Fresh Watermelon Chunks
  • 6 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1/2 cup Lime Soda Water
  • 1 lime for garnish


  • In a blender, add watermelon, basil, lime juice and honey.
  • Blend until smooth and pour through a metal strainer.
  • In a cocktail shaker tin, add watermelon mix, gin and a few ice cubes.
  • Shake for about 20 seconds.
  • Fill 2 glasses with ice, divide the watermelon mixture evenly between the two glasses.
  • Top with Lime soda water.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and basil leaf.
