Gin Recipe 01 – Basil & Elderflower

Gin Recipe 01 – Basil & Elderflower

Recipe 01 is inspired by the Flo & Basy – a cocktail from Coppinger Row in Dublin, Ireland.



This gins unique flavor comes from a hand-selected blend of botanical sourced from local suppliers. Our botanicals are infused by maceration-steeping them until the flavors are bonded, then adding the fresh ingredients the day of redistilling to create a refreshing, elegant flavor profile.

What you will find in this small batch craft gin are refreshing floral and citrus notes, an herbaceous bouquet of basil on the nose, a uniquely fresh, and floral finish of elderflower on the palate. This delicate gin is stellar for sipping neat or over ice, but also pairs well with many light-bodied fruits, herbs, and spices in a cocktail.

This gin can be enjoyed neat, over ice, or mixed into your favorite gin cocktail, such as G&T, Gimlets, Gin Fizz, etc.

“Stolen Base” by Calina Kung

Stolen Base inspired by Rickey Henderson

2 oz Common Ground Gin
1 oz fresh lime juice
½ oz St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
3-5 oz chilled tonic water

Pour gin, lime juice and St. Germain into ice filled highball glass. Top with tonic water and stir gently. Squeeze lime wedge over the drink and drop it in.

*Elements of green and yellow equal Oakland A’s. My favorite player is Rickey Henderson. This concoction is so good, it’ll steal your heart in 2.8 sec which is the amount of time it took for #24 to steal 2nd base.
