Gin and Tonic with Dried Orange and Rosemary

A fantastic G&T variant for your home drink portfolio is a fresh and slightly tart gin and tonic with dried orange and rosemary. If you like your drink a bit bitter and dry, be sure to try this recipe. The Dry Tonic Water combines wonderfully with the herbal note of rosemary. The highlight is the dried orange wheels, which give a great sweet-bitter contrast as a dry chip with the drink. You can also put the dried wheels inside the drink. There they soften again and slowly release their intense aroma into the gin and tonic.

Gin Mare Mediterranean Gin
Rating: 4/5

Gin Mare is a produce of Spain that is distilled from olives, rosemary and thyme among other botanicals. As such, it pairs nicely with cocktails that have rosemary.

Yet another suggestion for this gin and tonic with orange and rosemary is the Seville Orange gin from Tanqueray. We are yet to try this out. But somehow the sweet orange aroma from Flor de Sevilla should complement this drink very well. Comments are invited about how this pairs!
