Gin and straw­berry tonic

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

“With gin the spirit du jour, jump on the hip­ster band­wagon with this su­per sim­ple twist on the clas­sic G&T. Our tip is to use a great tonic wa­ter such as Capi or Fever Tree and ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent Aus­tralian bou­tique gins. I love Brookie’s from By­ron Bay, Bund­aberg’s Kalki Moon and Bris­bane’s Art of Booze. This is also the ideal drink to serve dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son thanks to its red and green colour.” Anooska Tucker-Evans, Taste Ed­i­tor
