Gin and Tonic with Grapefruit and Tarragon

Would you like to give your gin and tonic a new touch? Then definitely try this fresh recipe. This G&T is fresh, sweet, bitter, lovely and a bit tart. A sweet Old Tom Gin combines with bitterly sweet, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. The tarragon gives the overall composition a great new flavor component with its herbaceous notes of star anise and licorice. It is topped up with tonic water and the juice from 2 squeezed grapefruits. The end of the day can’t get any better.
