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!!

    Hey girl! How long do I need to infuse the tonic water for- over night a few hours before serving??

      Hi! The fruit just adds a subtle flavor to the gin and tonic, but you totally good infuse the gin for a stranger flavor! I didn’t do this, but I’m sure if you sliced the fruit and let it soak in the gin over night in the fridge it would be good! If you try it let me know!
