Making the Perfect Summer Cocktails

Whether you’re at home or jetting off to warmer climes such as paradisiac island Ibiza, make sure you’ve got the perfect cocktail at hand. We’re not going to pretend we’re expert mixologists, we’re better at tasting rather than concocting, but our friends at Fever-Tree showed us how. By using only tonic water as a mixer, you can make some great refreshing summer cocktails all in under five minutes; perfect for when you’re entertaining or simply feeling a little thirsty.



The newest addition to the Fever-Tree range, Aromatic tonic is inspired by a historic recipe used by the Royal Navy in the 19th Century. Using the highest quality angostura bark sourced from South America, the aromatic flavour complements bold juniper-rich gins for a modern twist on the quintessentially British “Pink Gin”.

What you’ll need: 200ml Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water, 50ml Juniper-heavy Gin (we’d recommend Plymouth Gin, Navy Strength for the brave), a slice of orange and a sprig of mint.

Method: Fill a glass with stacks of ice, and pour the premium Gin. Top up with Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water and garnish with a slice of orange and sprig of mint. NB: Don’t forget to clap the mint between your hands to activate the essential oils.
