In celebration of International Gin & Tonic Day we have pulled together some of our most appealing G&T recipes so you can step out of your comfort zone and be experimental with your serves.
Serve 1: Two Birds Old Tom & Grapefruit G&T
For a slightly sweeter G&T, try using Old Tom Gin instead of a London dry. Add a light tonic and a garnish of grapefruit slices, pink peppercorns and fennel for a fabulously fresh flavour combination that balances out the sweetness of the gin. The grapefruit and peppercorns enliven the serve while the fennel complements the botanicals in the gin.
Serve 2: Keepr’s Honey Gin & Rosemary G&T
The piney and robust herbaceous notes of rosemary are a perfect pairing for Keepr’s Honey Gin. The savoury flavour of the herb cuts through the sweetness of the infusion of pure honey in this juniper forward gin as does the bitterness of the Indian tonic.
Serve 3: English Heritage St Clement’s Lemon and Thyme G&T
The juniper and fruit-forward notes of English Heritage St Clement’s Gin are a match for the tartness of Franklin & Sons Sicilian Lemon Tonic. The sweetness of the orange blush blends well with the lemon, for a taste of Italy in the mouth. Garnish with thyme for a subtle herb flavour with a wonderful aroma and orange peel to enhance the citrus botanicals.
Serve 4: Dodd’s Organic Cinnamon and Nutmeg Spiced G&T
There’s a tickle of earthy spice in Dodd’s Organic Gin which stands up well to the sweetness of cinnamon and nutmeg. These two spices give a lovely aromatic and wintry flavour to a G&T plus an extra kick to the gin, especially ones with a strong ABV like Dodd’s. Add an orange slice to finish off the seasonal taste.
Serve 5: 1606 G&T with Lime
Sometimes the complexity of a tonic is all that’s needed to elevate the gin. The easy drinking nature of 1606 Gin with its lingering citrus notes beautifully complements the spicy sweetness of Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic. All that’s required to make this serve sing is a slice of fresh lime.
