Cocktail: Bitter orange G&T

Gin lovers rely on their mixers to elevate, not mask, the rich botanical blends of our favourite gins. Much of a tonic’s ability to do just that comes down to flavour, which didn’t escape the Franklin & Sons team when they were balancing citrus and quinine in the Natural Indian Tonic in your June Gin of the Month box.

The subtle citrus note in the tonic water makes it the perfect mixer for the Bitter Orange G&T.
