Here’s #6 of 10 cocktails I will be sharing with you, all made with Double Dutch tonics from their Explorer pack – a mixed case of tonics so you never have to drink dull!
Today’s gin cocktail presents the limited edition Double Dutch Rhubarb and Pineneedle tonic to create The Pink Forest.
I wasn’t sure what to make of this flavour combination before I tried it, but you won’t be disappointed. The rhubarb brings a tart flavour with a fruity warmth that combines with the herby, aromatic taste of the pine needle with a slight citrus note.
Complimenting the tonic with a light spirit such as Gordon’s pink gin, balances the natural sweetness of the raspberries and strawberries with the tang of redcurrant to bring a lovely sweet aroma with a herbaceous finish.
Finish it off with a wheel of lime and you’ve got a drink that suits any time of the year.
