local gin and tonic cocktail recipe
Gin and tonic are one of our favorite cocktails. Simple and delicious! Since there are only two ingredients, we highly recommend purchasing an upscale gin like Cadée Gin.
Cadée Gin is handcrafted on the Isle of Whidbey, one of the largest islands in Washington. It also happens to be on the same latitude of Scotland. Like Scotland, Whidbey has miles coastline, salty breezes and gray days. Who knows? You may feel as if you are in Scotland while sipping your gin and tonic.
Did you know that a lot major tonic producers brands use HFCS (hight fructose corn syrup) in their tonics? HFCS is considerably cheaper than sugar, making it less expensive than a healthier tonic.
HFCS add a syrupy flavor to the tonic, therefore competing with the taste of your Gin. If you are taking the time to buy a high quality gin, than take the time to purchase a high quality tonic like Fever Tree .
We also found Q Tonic Water. Containing 85% lower glycemic rating, as well as 60% fewer calories than regular tonic water. Made with natural Peruvian quinine which is used by naturalists and herbalists to improve health, increase energy, and stimulate blood flow. WOW! I just sold myself on this tonic water.
makes one gin and tonic cocktail recipe
2 oz of Cadée Gin
6 oz of Fever Tree
3 clementine slices
1. Put your glasses in the freezer for about a half an hour.
2. Once the ice glasses are chilled add 2 ice cubes to your glass.
3. Squeeze in the juice of one clementine tangerine. Add in your clementine slices and one sprig of rosemary.
4. Be sure to use a Jigger for the perfect shot. Pour your gin in the glass, and add the tonic and stir before serving.
