4 new ways to enjoy tonic this summer

While we’ll always love the classic G&T, there’s more than one way to enjoy tonic. Get ready for some chilled summer vibes with these refreshing and super trendy tonic-based drinks.


The floral G&T

Proof that not all G&Ts were created equal, the botanical-forward aromas of Fever-Tree’s Elderflower Tonic is the upgrade your next gin needs, and it will go perfectly with the floral fynbos botanicals of Inverroche’s Verdant Gin. Garnish this G&T with rose pelargonium. It will further tie in with the floral notes of both the gin and tonic, finishing with a soft citrus and earthy tone.

The rum tonic

Looking for something a little unusual? How about swapping out your trusty gin for an aged rum for a refreshing new summer drink? The bitterness of the tonic balances out the sweet notes in white rum and compliments the aromas of lightly aged golden rums.  Follow the usual gin and tonic recipe, replacing the gin with Inverroche’s Limestone 10 Year rum. Combine in a tumbler with Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water, lots of ice and garnish with slices of lime and fresh mint.

The non-alcoholic tonic cocktail

Sometimes we all need a booze-free option, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on the flavour. We love Seedlip’s non-alcoholic distilled spirit for their abundant flavour – meaning you can enjoy all the benefits of a grown-up spirit, with none of the alcohol. The zesty, citrus blend of Seedlip Grove 42 is enhanced superbly by the fresh, crispness of Fever-Tree’s Refreshingly Light Tonic Water. Pour together over ice in a tall glass, and complete the serve with a twist of orange peel and a rosemary sprig.

The bitters tonic

Love the idea of a low-alcohol drink? Just a few dashes of bitters will add a punch of flavour to your tonic, taking it to a whole new level. Fill a glass with ice and Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water. Then add four to six dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters and stir. Garnish with a citrus wedge or pressed herb sprig and serve.
