Thinking of Drinking: BB & TT

By: Laurie Wallin

Blueberries and basil scream summer and Bar Dupont’s BB & TT really hits the spot on a hot summer evening.

2oz Tanqueray Gin
Handful of blueberries
2 basil leaves
2 lime wedges
Splash of simple syrup*

In a mixing glass, muddle the fruit and add the spirit. Combine ingredients by shaking heavily until frosted. Pour into a rock glass and add a splash of tonic to finish.

*Simple Syrup: Take equal parts water and sugar and stir to dissolve sugar.
