Spring has officially sprung, and what better way to celebrate the longer nights, warmer air and start of the social season than a delicious vegan friendly gin and tonic! The perfect drink shared amongst friends or by yourself while you unwind for the weekend.
We’ve gathered three of our favourite gin and tonic recipes that perfectly highlight our citrus-centric low alcohol botanical spirits, so you can feel all the buzz without the blah!
ALL ABOUT THAT BASE
Hey Low 1-to-3 Ratio
Using the right ratio of spirit to tonic is the key to making your G&T go from ‘yum’ to ‘yessss!’
- 60ml Hey Low botanical spirit
- 180ml Strangelove light tonic
In a highball glass or tumbler, add ice, your Hey Low and your tonic. There’s no need to stir – just give the girl a swirl.
Not a fan of tonic water? Swap it out for spritzy soda for a sparkly kick.
Punchy Passionfruit Gin and Tonic
Our first vegan friendly G&T is made using our Passionfruit Botanical Spirit and is the perfect drink if you’re looking for something sweet and zesty!
- Passionfruit pulp is the key to adding texture and fierce flavour here, try a teaspoon or half a passionfruit per serve
- Garnish with Citrus & Co’s locally sourced dehydrated lemon slices and top with fresh mint leaves
Pro tip: crush the leaves in your hands and rub around the rim of the glass for an extra minty zzzzing!
Pineapple Pleasure Gin and Tonic
While pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza (in our humble opinion), it definitely belongs in your next gin and tonic! Our vegan friendly Pineapple Botanical Spirit is fresh and bright, featuring a refreshing natural sweetness your friends will love.
- Add a splash of pineapple juice to sweeten the drink up
- Garnish with Citrus & Co’s pineapple or lime slices, or both!
Pro tip: place your pineapple juice in the freezer a few hours before you serve your drinks for frozen slushie vibes on a hot day.
