Cucumber-Rosemary Gin & Q Tonic


Cucumber-Rosemary Gin & Q Tonic
Serves 2
This spin on the classic G&T is not for the faint of heart, but lovers of the bold spirit will relish the extra kick of rosemary, and how it plays with the cooling effects of the cucumber and effervescent tonic water. If you prefer something less intense, skip the rosemary and swap Hendrick's for Bombay Sapphire.
