  1. In a cocktail shaker or jug, mix together the lime juice, maple syrup and basil leaves. Muddle or use the end of a rolling pin to gently break down the basil leaves so they infuse into the liquid. Stir in the Bombay Bramble Gin.
  2. In two tall glasses, fill about half-way with crushed ice and the berries, if using. Divide the gin between each glass. Top up with soda water to taste. For a stronger drink, use approximately 150ml soda water. For a weaker drink, use 200ml soda water.
