Strawberry and Basil G&T Recipe

by Hannah Single October 08, 2018

Strawberries and summer… a match made in heaven. This delicious cocktail can be prepared in less than 10 minutes and is definitely cocktail-bar standard if you ask us. We’ve added coconut water for a hint of sweetness (as well as for that great flavour and added hydration), but you can also substitute with additional Nexba tonic water.

Strawberry and basil Gin and tonic

This recipes is delicious with all 3 of our tonic waters so you can decide if you’re in the mood for classic, cranberry & hibiscus or lime, cucumber and mint.


Servings 2.

  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced in half
  • 1 handful basil leaves, to garnish
  • 2 shots gin
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 cup Nexba classic tonic water
  • 1 handful ice cubes


  1. Place strawberries and basil in a glass (or cocktail shaker) and muddle using a wooden spoon.
  2. Add gin, coconut water and lime juice.
  3. Place ice cubes in jars and pour the cocktails over it. Then add tonic water, garnish with fresh strawberries and basil.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
