Herbal Homestead Gin and Tonic
Light and refreshing, with bold herbal flavours, this twist on a classic G&T is summer in a glass.
loosely packed mixed fresh herb leaves
basil, parsley, tarragon, coriander or thyme
roughly chopped ripe summer tomato
roughly chopped English cucumber
2-4 fl oz (depending on your preferred strength)
bottle or can
Choose two sturdy, 16-ounce glasses, such as a highball, or use two pint mason jars.
Divide the herbs between the two glasses. Tip equal parts chopped tomato and cucumber on top.
Use a long-handles bar muddler (or wooden spoon) to crush both herbs and vegetables into a fragrant pulp.
Fill the glasses three-quarters full with ice and stir. Add one or two shots of gin to each glass, depending on how boozy you like it! Stir with a long handled bar spoon.
Top up drink with tonic water and garnish with a few fresh herb sprigs. Enjoy immediately.
