This recipe isn’t exactly classic, but it’s definitely worth trying. A dash of raspberry balsamic vinegar adds a fruity acidity to your drink. Pour gin and the pink cherry blossom tonic on top of the vinegar. The bitter notes of quinine in the tonic, the sweetness of the sugar and the floral cherry blossom aromas make your “pink gin tonic” a complex drink with a wow effect.
A London Dry Gin goes very well with the cherry blossom tonic. If you like it a little sweeter, use an Old Tom Gin. As decoration, you can also add whole Currant crisps in the long drink glass next to the ice cube tower.
