California Gin & Tonic

Chareau, an aloe liqueur with soft, sweet notes of mallow root and other botanicals, is one of our favorite newfangled spirits because it just seems to go with everything. This simple California Gin & Tonic recipe, from the spirit’s maker, is one of our favorite ways to make new fans of this unusual cactus liqueur.

Build in an ice-filled wine glass or short glass in the order given. Garnish with fresh herbs, slices of citrus, or edible flowers – anything goes.
