DRINKS: Three Takes on the classic Gin & Tonic


First of all I have to apologize, because I got to know Gin & Tonic quite recently. I had no idea about how good it was! Furthermore I have to admitt, that I became a little bit obsessed over the past two months… maybe has something to do with my A-Levels. When I visited a party quite recently, I met somebody who did pepper in their Gin & Tonic and I was a little bit confused, since I was a Gintonic newbee and had to deal with the classic before getting experimental.

But the acquaintance had something really good because I started to think about other Gin & Tonic combination. As I usually do, I started my search for some Inspiration on Pinterest and OMG there are some bloomin´lovely recipes on there, so I couldn´t decide which one to take as an inspiration, which is the reason why you guys are getting three versions of Gin & Tonic today.

Just in case you need some help with deciding which one to make first: I liked the cucumber/rosemary one the most, but if you are more of a sweet person as my mum: she liked the rose one the most!
