Bitterlemon Rosemary Gin Smash
Let's talk gin drinks for a second before getting into this magic concoction. Gin and tonic is one of your two basic gin drinks. The other is a gin martini (the original). Tonic in it's original state (not cheap soda tonic, but really quinine tonic). Today the gin and tonic is being re-imagined into Spanish Gin and tonics with aromatics and GOOD tonic is more available than ten years ago.
My favorite brand is Fever Tree. Readily available this gem of a company is bringing back traditional cocktail mixers. One of those which tops my favorites is Bitter Lemon. Basically it's crazy delicious tonic with lemon. It's sweet, bitter, lemony and delicious all on its own. This is the key to this drink, and I highly suggest you buy a pack. Check out their website to learn more and find where you can buy it. (this post is in now way associated with fever-tree, just a big fan).
So you take bitter lemon soda, the aromatic trend in gin and tonics and fresh lovely citrus and gin and you have magic. Let me tell you. These are easy to drink, lovely in flavor and a modern and different way to approach a gin drink.
