Six Gin & Tonic Riffs That Prove Gin Is Always in Season


1 minute Read

Gin & Tonic season is almost here (we swear), with promise of fizzy, fruity, botanically boozy days ahead.

One of the most iconic drinks in bar history, G&Ts are perfect for summer, and with time outside comes inspiration to do things a little more fun. It’s affordable, it’s portable, and it can be whatever you make it. Here are six of our favorite riffs on the classic G&T.

Winter Gin & Tonic

While we bid our adieu to winter, we may as well do it in style. The Winter Gin & Tonic calls on cloves and spices à la the classic Hot Toddy, bringing in a fresh G&T spin. Spiced with a special simple syrup and a splash of OJ, it’s the perfect transition from winter to spring.

Pomegranate Gin & Tonic

Who doesn’t love pomegranate juice? To recreate that subtly sweet flavor, all you need is an ounce of grenadine.

Gin & Tonic Sorbet

Soon enough, sorbet will be replacing chocolate mousse on our go-to dessert list. Did you know you can easily turn sorbet into a delicious gin and tonic cocktail? It’s easy: Just add lime.

Navy Strength Botanical Gin & Tonic

Botanicals on botanicals (sprigs of thyme, lemon, and cracked black pepper) plus high-proof gin make this version fit for an old-time maritimer.

The Breakfast Tonic

Created by 100 Acres at Hotel Henry in Buffalo, N.Y., this Gin & Tonic riff’s use of Edinburgh’s Christmas Gin and Rishi tea (English Breakfast or Earl Grey are both favorable), make it ideal for morning imbibing.

The GT&C

Is anything more refreshing than cucumber? We think not. Adding muddled cucumber to the classic G&T gives the OG cocktail an incredible lift. All you’ve got to do is slice, dice, and pour. (See us make it here!)
