Gin & Tonic

Bittermen tonic 1
Seriously? A recipe for Gin & Tonic? Isn't the name the recipe?

This is an invitation to deconstruct the classic combination. Take control of how much bitter quinine flavor goes into the cocktail by using a tonic syrup. Add another unique touch by adding a drop of citrus bitters, if you'd like.

3½ oz Q Club soda
2 oz City of London Dry Gin
¾ oz Bittermens Commonwealth Tonic Cordial

Add everything to a chilled Collins glass filled with ice and stir briefly. Garnish with a lime wedge.
