gin & tonic recipe hacks

In our house Gin & Tonic recipe we cut down the proof by splitting the base between gin and fino sherry, and kick up the aromatics by way of a dose of both lime and mint.

Ingredients

Serving: 1

  • 3/4 ounce gin
  • 1 1/2 ounces fino sherry
  • 3/4 ounce lime
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 5 mint leaves
  • tonic water, to top (preferably Fever Tree)

Garnish: Mint bouquet, lime wheel

Directions
  1. In a Collins glass, muddle the mint leaves in the simple syrup.
  2. Add the gin, sherry and lime and fill with ice.
  3. Top with tonic water.
  4. Garnish with a mint bouquet and a lime wheel.
