A little bit of a new feature here on The Gin is In. We’re going to look at “One Good Cocktail” for every gin that we review here at the Gin is In. Right now we’re combining our two most recent writeups. Tomr’s Tonic and Missouri’s Pinckney Bend Gin.
My favorite thing about Tomr’s tonic is the way that it makes this rich looking cocktail. I put it in a beer stein for dramatic effect. The dark and cloudy color reminds me a bit of a good IPA, something which I’ve had to give up due to my gluten intolerance. I digress, back to the drink.
This cocktail has a bold citrus punch. Tomr’s and Pinckney bend pay respects to their primary flavor requirements (Quinine and Juniper, respectively) but both opt for a more citrus forward take. The outcome? A relatively strong citrusy- lemon and orange primarily- gin and tonic. Spare the lime, this combination does all of the good work on its own.
