I love infused gin and tonic recipes! This ginger, mint, strawberry gin, & tonic served with lime and fresh fruit pieces are the best happy hour drink for a busy week!
Gin with tonic have been my go-to drink lately and I am getting tired of the traditional lime garnish. I gave this happy hour drink a make-over today. I present to you this fruity, slightly spicy, and refreshing infused gin recipe.
Strawberry Gin and Tonic Recipe
The ingredients for this mint, ginger, and strawberry infused gin:
- Fresh Strawberries
- Fresh Ginger – slice it into thin slices
- Tonic Water
Tools and Glassware:
- Tumbler Glass
To make the perfect strawberry gin cocktail without having to make any syrups I like to add fruits and herbs to the gin the night before.
Add the gin, strawberries, ginger slices, and mint to a bottle or to a shaker with an air-tight lid. Refrigerate overnight or at least for a few hours.
When ready to make the cocktails simply strain the infused gin over ice and top with tonic water. Garnish with lime and mint leaves.
Infused Gin FAQs:
What is a good gin to use for this recipe? Any gin you have is perfect but I love Hendrix or The Botanist.
Can I use canned gin and tonic? Of course! Skip the overnight infusion though. Simply add the fruits and herbs to your gin cocktail over some ice and you are good to go.
Can I make this ahead of time? Yes! Infuse the gin overnight, strain, and transfer to a decanter. Use in cocktails as regular gin.
