Just when it seemed like our well of tonic drinks had run dry, we bring you a cocktail in which the tonic is a more of an ensemble player. A cocktail that shines because of how the gin, ginger, and tonic botanicals play together.Ginger G&T A cocktail that will change your life…

While we’re featuring ginger in our G&T this week, we love using other accents (like peppers or cranberries) and urge you to experiment with other flavors. As we come into summer, think about muddling some fresh fruit or an herb from the garden into your tonics. You’ll love the pop of flavor.

Ginger G&T

2 oz Distiller’s Gin No. 6
¼-½ oz Ginger Simple Syrup, to taste
Tonic Water

In your favorite glass, add gin and syrup, then add ice, and top with tonic. Garnish with a lime wedge or a piece of fresh ginger root, or both.
