Le Sirop de MONIN Basil

Le Sirop de MONIN Basil

An annual herb belonging to the mint family, basil is often referred to as the “royal herb”. It is a fragile and sensitive herb and is a widespread ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine. It has different varieties, from Italian to Thai basil. It is increasingly popular among bartenders who wish to add a hint of freshness to their creations. Le Sirop de MONIN Basil tastes incredible in cocktails and mocktails alike, lifting each drink with a strong, herbal flavour with peppery hints.

The MONIN Tips

I really like adding MONIN Basil syrup to a mojito. The balance between the freshness of the mint, the spiciness of the basil and the acidity of the lime can really make a perfect match. If you want a little taste of Asia, you should associate MONIN Basil syrup, MONIN Lychee liqueur and a fruit juice of your choice. But my favorite use will definitely be in a Martini cocktail mix with lime juice, Le Fruit de MONIN Raspberry, gin shaken and topped with a flamed twist.
