Gin and strawberry tonic
“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
