Fruit Infused Gin and Tonics


GinandTonic_2 GinandTonic_1 GinandTonic_3When I’m at a dive bar or not feeling a sweet cocktail, I usually go for a classic gin and tonic. They’re pretty plain, but I like the refreshing taste and enjoy sipping on something simple. To give the standard gin and tonic recipe a twist, I added some fresh fruit and herbs to slightly infuse the tonic water. Just like infusing water (you can see that post here), this works with a classic gin and tonic too. It gives the cocktail a deliciously subtle flavor and adds gorgeous color too. Serve the cocktail in a large round glass with ice and in seconds the standard gin and tonic is now one for the books! Below are a few different concoctions I created… experiment and try your favorite fruit or herbs! Happy summer!

Strawberry and Orange

Cucumber and Sage

Kiwi and Lemon

Fill a glass with ice, add in the fruit and herbs, pour tonic water 3/4 of the way full and add 1 or 1 1/2 ounces gin. Easy!!
