GIN AND TONIC INGREDIENTS

  • gin
  • tonic water
  • mixed berry puree
  • lemon zest
  • granulated sugar for rimming glasses

Two of the most popular brands are Bombay Sapphire, which should be served with lime, and Hendricks that should be served with a cucumber.

I threw out these rules and served Bombay Sapphire Gin with berries and *GASP* lemon.

HOW TO MAKE GIN AND TONIC SHOTS

FIRST: Make your rimming sugar by mixing a small amount of sugar, roughly 2 tablespoons, with 1 tablespoon lemon zest.

SECOND: Make the berry puree by mixing 1/2 cup berries, frozen or fresh, with 1/2 cup water. Blend until combined and all large chucks are gone. Mix the gin and mixed berry puree in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to combine.

THIRD: Add the tonic water and stir. Tonic is carbonated and shaking is not advised:) Rub a small section of the shot glass with lemon juice

FOURTH: Dip the glass in the lemon sugar to get a small amount to stick. Strain the gin and tonic mixture into the shot glasses. Enjoy!
