Create a Simple Syrup (best if prepared ahead):
STEEP 8oz water with Mint Basil Tea per package directions. Strain tea and set aside. Discard tea leaves.
ADD brewed tea and sugar to a medium sauce pan. Bring ingredients to a boil while stirring occasionally.
ONCE boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
REMOVE from heat. Strain and set aside to chill before use.
Create the Cocktail:
ADD 2 oz gin, 1 oz fresh lemon juice, and 1.25 oz of the Mint Basil Tea Syrup made above to a shaker. Shake well. Strain ingredients into a tall collins glass, then top with soda water.
GARNISH with a lemon slice and fresh flowers. Enjoy!
Remaining simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks!
