Elderflower Gin and Tonic with Apple and Juniper
Elderflower Gin and Tonic
Our 'LONDON' Dry Gin is not just London by name, but London by nature, too. Made using locally-sourced London apples and linden blossom, it pairs wonderfully with an elderflower tonic to bring out the fruity, floral notes of the gin. To bring out some of the extra fruity notes, add in a slice of apple to garnish (red or green, take your pic!). Sprinkle juniper berries to decorate. And there you have it, a refreshing Gin and Elderflower Cocktail recipe you can make at home in literally 2 mins or less!
50ml of Jim and Tonic's 'LONDON' Dry Gin made using locally-sourced apples and linden blossom
150-200ml Elderflower tonic
Plenty of cubed ice
Apple (red or green)
YOU ALSO NEED
Grab a large copa (aka balloon) glass...
Try to ensure your glass is pre-chilled and not warm. To do this, you can fill it with some ice and swirl it round for 15 secs and then discard this ice. However, if you don't have that much ice to mess around with, swill your glass under some very cold water. Just make sure that glass is nice and cold somehow yeah!...
Now the good stuff, add 50ml (i.e. a double shot) of your LONDON Dry Gin...
Add plenty of cubed ice. IMPORTANT: ice that bad boy all the way to the top to reduce dilution and a watery cocktail...
Crack open the Elderflower tonic and pour into your glass...
Cut your apple into 4-5 thin slices and 'fan it out' before delicately placing in the top of your drink...
Sprinkle a small handlful of Juniper Berries...
Give it all a gentle stir...
Sit back and enjoy your refreshing, crisp elderflower and apple London G&T!
