Gin and tonic with Mediterranean water and rosemary

Gin and Tonic with Mediterranean Tonic Water and Rosemary

This gin and tonic combo is now almost a classic and indispensable in any bar. A mild, dry, slightly salty tonic taste that is reminiscent of a holiday by the sea and the Mediterranean touch of fresh rosemary make this recipe a refreshing and a different experience.

For an intense, slightly smoky variant in the nose, lightly flame the rosemary with a flambé burner. However, make sure that the twig does not flare up directly. So keep the flame a little away so that the herb only swells slightly. Blow out any flames.
