pink grapefruit & gin basil smash.


A fragrant, tangy and zesty cocktail recipe that gin fans will love. Featuring Fentimans new botanically brewed Pink Grapefruit Tonic Water, this gin cocktail meets aromatic fresh basil with bittersweet grapefruit tonic for a refreshing and colourful drink. 

The newest Fentimans flavours range from the likes of Ginger Beer & Muddled Lime to Rose Lemonade. As a gin lover though, I couldn't wait to play around with their great quality tonic waters in my cocktail recipes. The pink grapefruit in particular muddles together fragrant juniper berry, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass along with natural citrus flavours, quinine and grapefruit juice, making it the ideal match for your favourite gin. 


Shopping list.
♥ Crushed ice
♥ 2tsp fresh basil, chopped plus extra to garnish
♥ 50ml of your favourite gin (I'm loving Whitley Neill dry gin at the moment, which matched well with botanicals of sweet orange, lemon, bittersweet juniper berries and coriander seeds)
♥ Fentimans Pink Grapfruit Tonic Water

Step one. Add your crushed ice to the glass and muddle with the chopped basil

Step two. Pour over your gin and top with pink grapefruit tonic.

Step three. Serve with a garnish of basil leaves.

Have you ever made a cocktail with Fentimans tonics? Have you tried pink grapefruit with gin?
