Pineapple and Basil add a fruity and floral flavor to the classic gin and tonic. Deep South Cape Dry Gin infused with fresh basil and ripe pineapple create a fruity summer cocktail you will love!

This is a bold flavoured cocktail, with heady aromas of the tropics.   

Make a batch (without the basil and soda) and let it infuse a while before serving for a beautiful party punch.  Add garnishes, ice and soda to the infusion when compiling the cocktail.
