A gin and tonic gets a little extra kick from bold muddled ginger and fresh citrus making it a perfect transitional drink into the fall season.
To a tall glass or cocktail shaker, add grapefruit, lemon, and ginger. Top with the simple syrup and gin.
Muddle until ingredients have broken down and begin to combine.
Add ice to the glass, cover, and shake vigorously for a minute.
Fill another tall glass with ice. Using a strainer, pour the mix over the ice.
Top with tonic.
Garnish with fresh sliced ginger. Sip and enjoy!
This makes a tall, stiff drink. Reduce gin to 2 ounces and increase the tonic for a more traditional gin and tonic mix.
