Garden Gin & Tonic
The Garden Gin & Tonic is a fresh take on a classic from London barman Jamie Gordon. Blanc vermouth and orange (or other citrus) bitters add a floral, citrusy bouquet to the G&T template, played up even further with fresh cucumber, citrus, strawberries, and herbs. We consider these full-fledged ingredients, rather than garnishes; they contribute a great deal to the incredible scent and flavor of the drink.
London Dry gin is called for in the original recipe – but a botanical gin like Hendrick’s, with its cucumber and rose notes, is a natural choice here.
Add the gin, blanc vermouth, and bitters to a tall, ice-filled glass or wine glass. Top with the tonic water and add the cucumber, citrus wheels, strawberry slices, and the sprig of mint or lavender.
