Tipsy
I know this isn't a fashion DIY, but mixology has been taking up a lot of my time lately. I couldn't help but share this, I don't want to brag, but this is pretty damn delicious. Its a mix of Ginger, Seckel Pear, Basil, and Gin. You can play around with the Ginger/Gin to find your perfect balance.

  • How to mix a gin smash. Ginger Pear Smash  - Step 1
    Step 1

    GINGER BASIL SIMPLE SYRUP
    1 Cup Sugar
    1 Cup Water
    1 Bunch of Basil
    1 or 2 Large Ginger Root, sliced (I didn't peel mine, I just washed it)
    1 Seckel Pear

    On the stove add the sugar and water together in a pot, bring to a low boil, and reduce the heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and add in the Ginger, Basil, and Pear to the syrup. I turned off the heat and let the pot sit on the stove for an hour. Strain the syrup into an airtight jar. You can keep the the syrup in the refrigerator up to a month.
