6 Fall Gin and Tonic Recipes

Fall is finally here and so we decided to embark on our own little Gin and Tonic series featuring flavors and colors of fall that will leave you with a cozy drink and spirit. Without further ado, here are six gin and tonic recipes to enjoy this autumn season.

Apple Cider Gin and Tonic:

Nothing says fall more than apple cider. The sweet flavor, warm tones, and cozy sipping experience make winter all that much better. So why not elevate it even more by adding the elite of spirits, our beloved gin. For this gin and Tonic, the only addition required is some cloudy apple cider and a few autumn favorite garnishes. We decided to keep it on theme with a cinnamon stick and a slice of red apple.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
3 Ounces tonic water
3 Ounces apple cider (The cloudy kind preferred)
Ice


Instructions:
Into a glass add in the ice, gin and tonic water, top off with the apple cider, garnish, sip, and enjoy.

Smoked Rosemary Gin and Tonic:

Rosemary might not be the first herb that comes to mind when you think fall cocktails, but lets focus on the smoke for a moment. Adding in a slight hint of flavor that takes the original gin and tonic to a new level while not taking away from the loved flavor of the gin and the tonic water.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
3-4 Ounces tonic water
Rosemary spring
Ice

Instruction:
Burn off the end of the rosemary spring and place it under a glass until smoke fills it in. Turn over the glass and add in the ice, gin, and tonic water. Garnish, sip, and enjoy.

Autumn Gin and Tonic:

This gin and tonic is the ultimate fall gin drink, introducing warm flavors of Amaretto mixed with the bitter yet citrusy flavor of triple sec. Not to mention the beautiful golden hue that is the result of the mixture. For Additional fall coziness we opted-in for a simple garnish of star anise and cinnamon stick that bring the flavors to a full circle of heaven.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
3-4 Ounces tonic water
1/2 Ounce amaretto
1/4 Ounce triple Sec
Ice

Instructions:
Into a glass add in the ice, gin, amaretto, and triple sec. Top off with tonic water, garnish, sip, and enjoy.

Pear Gin and Tonic:

In our minds pears and apples are practically siblings, which means, if apples are a fall fruit, pears are right there with them. Not to mention the sweet vanilla bean that is added to this cocktail to make it the right level of warm fall flavor. Although pear juice can be added to this cocktail, it is the elderflower liqueur and vanilla that are the main stars with the pear making its appearance as the gin infused garnish.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
4-5 Ounces tonic Water
1/2 Ounce elderflower liqueur
Vanilla bean
Ice

Instructions:
Into a glass add in the ice, gin, and elderflower liqueur. Using the back of a knife scrape the inside of a small piece of vanilla bean (about and inch in length) and stir into the drink. Top off with tonic water and garnish with a slice of pear. For added flavor add a splash of pear juice. Sip, and enjoy.

Fig Gin and Tonic:

This gin and tonic cocktail is more of hybrid between the classic drink and the gin and jam. Making the overall cocktail sweeter than normal, yet fizzy as always. This gin drink requires a bit of shaking to break down the jam, but it is worth the extra step to get the smooth sipping flavor that is the result.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
1-2 Ounces tonic water
1 Tablespoon fig jam
3/4 Ounce lemon juice
Ice
Coriander seeds

Instructions:

Orange Gin and Tonic:

It is the season for citrus to shine, and we are not going to let that go to waste. Now that oranges are finally in season and as sweet as they can be, it is time to give a few of them a squeeze right into a glass and top them off with a bit of tonic water. Use the the reminder of the orange as a garnish in the glass to add bit of fall color and extra flavor.

Ingredients:
2 Ounces gin
4-5 Ounces tonic water
1/2 an orange
Ice
