In Gin No. 6 Recipes

Our drink of this week was a huge hit at Chicago Gourmet, the annual festival of fantastic food & drink here in Chicago in late September. This year, we teamed up with the fine folks at Rishi Tea for a tea-infused gin cocktail. Their team really knocked it out of the park with this delicious sipper – perfect for an early fall day or Indian summer evening.

G & Tea

2 oz Distiller’s Gin No. 6 infused with Rishi Orange Blossom Tea
1/4 a Tangerine cut into wedges, or two half moon slices of orange
2 Sprigs of Mint
5 oz Good Tonic Water (we used Fever Tree, as usual)

Muddle fruit and mint in tall or wide glass. Fill with ice, then add gin and tonic. Stir and enjoy!

To make the tea infusion, add 4 tbsp of tea to 1 bottle of gin. Infuse for 40-45 minutes, then fine strain.
