Tarragon Tonic

  • 2 oz ice cold gin (stored in freezer)
  • 5 oz ice cold tonic water (stored in the coldest part of the refrigerator)
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh tarragon
  • Squeeze of lime

(1) Rub the tarragon sprigs gently around the inside and rim of a chilled glass, reserving one for garnish.

(2) Add the ice cold gin to the glass, then gently pour the tonic water into the gin by titling the glass and pouring it down the side.

(3) Gently add ice (slide it slowly down the side of the glass) and lime (adding them last keeps the carbonation high and mixes the ingredients best).

(4) Garnish with tarragon and (optional) peppercorns or juniper berries.
