Basilic Nilgiri Cocktail

We have created a cocktail with our signature iced tea the ‘Summer in Nilgiri’.  It is a combination of two teas from the Tea Studio our factory in the South of India (the white tea Bai Mu Dan and the green tea Mao Feng) and the relaxing tisane La Bergère, floral and delicate.  The fresh floral bouquet of the tea is complimented by the lime and basil and completed with the boreal touch of KM12 gin.  A perfect cocktail for relaxing in the sun.


  • 3 oz of iced tea Summer in Nilgiri (prepared following instructions on the bag but without adding sugar)
  • 3/4 oz lime and basil syrup (recette plus bas)
  • 1 1/2 of gin 'Km12'
  • 3 oz carbonated water


  • Blend all the ingredients and stir gently.
  • Serve on ice with a slice of lime and/or a basil leaf.



  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1cup of water
  • Juice and zeste of 3 limes
  • 1 cup of fresh basil chopped leaves


  • In a pan, bring water and sugar to a boil.
  • Once sugar is completely dissolved remove from heat.
  • Add the basil and the lime juice and zeste
  • Filter and refrigerate
