Juniper & Lime Leaf Gin & Tonic

This is a special cocktail. The botanicals of citrusy and bright Makrut Lime Leaves and woodsy Juniper Berries enhance the gin flavor and create a truly luscious libation, perfect for your next celebratory "cheers!"... it helps that it is incredibly easy to make as well.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lime wheel
  • 1 strip orange zest
  • 1 Makrut Lime Leaf
  • 3 Juniper Berries
  • 1.5 ounces of gin (we like to use Hendrick's for this recipe)
  • 3-4 ounces of tonic water

PREPARATION:

  1. Combine 1 lime wheel, 1 strip of lemon zest (removed with a vegetable peeler), 1 Makrut lime leaf, 3 juniper berries, and 1 extra large ice cube in a large red wineglass or goblet. Add 1 1/2 ounces gin, then 3-4 ounces tonic water; stir to combine.


Yields: 1 Cocktail
