The Spring G&T

October 09, 2015

When the weather finally turns from winter to sunnier, "jacket optional" spring days, we know it's officially gin and tonic season. As with any simple recipe, the key to making a delicious gin and tonic is great ingredients. For the G of our G&T, we love using Hendrick's Gin, whose infusion of rose petals and cucumber pairs beautifully with Boylan Heritage Tonic. To add a seasonal twist to our G&T, we've added fresh cucumber and fragrant mint to the mix. We highly suggest doubling this're going to want a second round.
