New Pink Tonic Makes for the Prettiest Cocktails
With the G&T trend going stronger than ever, our favourite mixer, Fitch & Leedes, has come up roses with a new blushing Pink Tonic … the perfect fit for delicately crafted premium gins.
Palest pink, with whiffs of rose petals and fresh cucumber, it really is the prettiest way to enjoy a sundowner. Here are three recipes to try.
Add one part Hope on Hopkins Mediterranean Gin (which is infused with olives, rosemary, thyme, basil and cardamom with citrus notes and hints of juniper), to four parts Fitch & Leedes Pink Tonic. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
Triple Three African Botanicals Gin is carefully distilled from seven botanicals including the flora of the Western Cape. Add 50ml of gin to 200ml of Fitch & Leedes Pink Tonic. Garnish with a cucumber slice, orange wheel and rose petals.
You’ll find the three gins and good bottlestores, and the Pink Tonic at boutique wine shops, selected delis and cocktail bars for around R40 for a 6-pack of 200ml cans or R36 for a 4-pack of 200ml glass bottles.
