Recipe Description

Original recipes are fun to create, to imbibe and to share, but when I find a great cocktail recipe, I like to post it, not only to share, but for my own reference. I love having simple, great recipes always handy (ie, on my phone) for ideas, shopping lists and instructions. Hope this comes in handy for you too!

This drink is a go-to for me especially before a meal with an eastern flare. It originally appeared in shake, a great cocktail “cookbook” – perfect for a gift (which is how I got mine!)


  • 6 ounces gin
    Plymouth or any good London dry
  • 4 teaspoons cane sugar
    white granulated or raw/turbinado
  • 1.5 ounes fresh lemon juice
  • 6 slices fresh ginger
  • 4 teaspoons pink peppercorns
  • 4 leaves fresh basil


Put two coupes in the freezer.

In a shaker, muddle lemon juice, 4 slices of ginger, peppercorns, sugar and basil.

Add gin and lots of ice and shake vigorously.



Strain into chilled coupes, garnish with remaining ginger slices.

Serve & enjoy!
