Flor de Sevilla Gin and Tonic

The Flor de Sevilla Gin and Tonic has a slight orange color.

Pandemic Pub here – coming to you from the road, with masks on!

With the hot weather here in California, we’ve been making the most of tropical drinks like our family of Mai Tais. By adding one ingredient, and one word, to the cocktail every night, we’ve created an empire.

Today, we decided to switch it up. It’s still hot, and we were in the mood for a Gin and Tonic. We ran across a lovely orange gin – the prettiest spirit since the purple Empress gin – and we couldn’t say no.

You can see the orange color in the bottle for sure. It’s more subtle in the glass, but I hope you can see the light pinkish-orange color. That’s part of the charm.

The orange flavor was just right. This was an easy drink to make, but it tasted more complicated than it was. Subtle, summery, deep – this was a winner.

Ingredients

  • Sevilla Orange Gin

  • Limes

  • Tonic water

  • Mint leaves

Directions

  • Fill glass with ice; add gin to almost the halfway point.
  • Squeeze at least a half of a lime into the glass. Drop “used” lime wedge into glass also.
  • Top off the rest of the way with Tonic Water.
  • Add mint for garnish. Give a stir and enjoy!
