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.
- 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
- 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.
