THE ULTIMATE GIN & TONIC

gin8-edit2

I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t love a well timed gin & tonic so we thought we would take the classic and give you two slightly new versions, gin & tonic with a tasty twist.

Gin & Tonic

Muddled Peach & Rosemary Gin & Tonic

What you’ll need;

  • Ripe Peaches x 2
  • Fresh Rosemary – A couple of sprigs
  • Lime x 1
  • Gin of choice – We use Sipsmith
  • Tonic x 2 Mini cans
  • Ice
  • Cocktail Muddler

Method

  1. Chop one peach up into small chunks, divide between two glasses – the more peach flavour / sweetness you want, the more peach you should add.
  2. Add some rosemary – to taste but remember it’s quite a strong flavour, we like just a hint of the taste.
  3. Press down with your muddler / end of rolling pin / whatever you’re using and really mash up your peach – unlike when muddling herbs such as mint, the more you do this with your peach the more flavour you will get.
  4. Now add some ice…
  5. Now add your gin…
  6. Squeeze in a quarter of lime and drop the lime into your glass.
  7. Tope up with tonic and garnish with a little more peach, some more lime and a sprig of rosemary.

 


 

Grapefruit & Tarragon Gin & Tonic

This was soon good and I honestly wasn’t expecting to like it due to the aniseed like tarragon and the bitter grapefruit, however it totally works!

What you’ll need;

  • Grapefruit x 2
  • Fresh Tarragon
  • Mascavado Sugar x 1 Teaspoon
  • Gin
  • Tonic
  • Cocktail Shaker

Method

  1. Slice one of the grapefruits in half and juice, add the juice to a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add some of your tarragon…
  3. Add the teaspoon of sugar…
  4. Add your gin…
  5. Add some ice…
  6. Shake well. Set to one side.
  7. Take your glass and add two slices of grapefruit and lots of ice.
  8. Now add in your cocktail mixture, top up with tonic water and garnish with a little more tarragon.

So good! If you try either of them let us know what you think and feel free to tell all your friends! 😉
