Gin Sonic

Gin Sonic

The healthier version of Gin and Tonic that has been up and coming in the US is the Gin and Sonic. Thanks to the great Japanese tradition of the Highball, the gin sonic is a half/half mix of club soda and tonic water as the mixer, with a well selected gin. This makes this a refreshing spin on the classic. It happens to be lower in sugar and therefore a bit more elevated of a cocktail experience.

Here is our recipe!

In a highball glass that is well chilled add;

2 oz high quality Japanese gin (Roku by Suntori is our choice)

Ice

Gently add;

2 oz TNT Club No 1

2 oz TNT Classic Tonic Water

With a bar spoon, stir gently.

Serve with a salty snack before a summer meal! 

Ventian Mask

Ventian Mask

If you need a digestivo that is lighter and brighter after a summer barbecue, try an Amaro Tonic. We call this one Venetian Mask. Popular in Venice, where the heat and the close quarters of summer tourists can be consuming, you may find yourself in a little corner bar unknown to the world. Celebrate this find! A spritz is likely to be served, over ice, if you ask, the server will make an Amaro Tonic, a similar feel to spritz, and a little less boozy. Prepare this for dinner or after dinner, a great treat!

In Collins glass or wine glass build drink;


1.75 oz Amaro - We Like Cardomaro, a wine based Amaro. Or Amaro Nonino as a sweet, luxury.

Add ice

Pour 

3-4 oz Indian Tonic Water

Gentle stir

Lemon wheel garnish

Piston  - Pisco Tonic

Piston - Pisco Tonic

1.5 oz Catan Pisco

3 oz Top Note Indian Tonic water

Ice

Grapefruit or Lemon Wedge Garnish

Pisco, a brandy (distilled grape wine)  from South America, makes an excellent foil for the heat of summer. Instead of a Pisco Sour, try a Pisco Tonic, or Piston to spice up the BBQ. And for the Ginger Beer fans, try this with Ginger Beer instead of Tonic if you prefer!

The Cool Collected One

The Cool Collected One

Sometimes a G&T sounds great, but you suddenly realized you have to stay level and cool & collected for your party of guests. Try this simple "hack" to get the Gin flavor you want but with a juice press you can make at home!

 

4 oz Top Note Classic Tonic Water

2 oz savory juice press (see below)

2 dashes bitters 

Juniper Berries, Lime Wheel, Cucumber Wheel garnish

Build drink as you would a G&T, but instead of Gin add Juice Press. Garnish as you wish with Cucumbers or Lime.

If going for fancy, in a large balloon goblet, add a lime wheel and cucumber wheels first into the glass, add 2 dashes bitters, and build drink on top. Add ice. This makes a "pink drink" but builds fantastic flavor as the drinks sits and ice melts. Enjoy!

Juice Press: Blend 2 cucumbers, 3 stalks celery, 1 fresh lemon juiced in a blender. Pour into a cheesecloth and strain pulp. Save in a ball jar for up two 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
