Garden Gin & Tonic

Garden Gin & Tonic cocktail with gin, blanc vermouth, orange bitters, tonic water, strawberry, grapefruit, lemon, cucumber, and lavender

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
