From a Cuban summer to a British hedgerow via the Mediterranean. Lovely.
Take a chilled rocks glass, throw in 9 basil leaves, 4 wedges of lime and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Muddle until the lime juice is soaking the other ingredients. Fill the glass with cubed ice and pour over 50ml of Gordon's Sloe gin. Top up with fresh, chilled soda and give everything a stir. Garnish the cocktail with a wedge of lime and a basil leaf, gently bruised to bring out the aroma.
Serve in a rocks glass.
