I love a perfect Paloma cocktail and gin and tonic, so I combined them to make this gin and tonic with pink grapefruit. A good splash of Luckybird Elderflower syrup takes it to another level. Say hello to my new favourite drink which I plan to imbibe all summer long.
How to make a gin & tonic with pink grapefruit and elderflower syrup
As this drink relies on so few ingredients, freshly squeezed pink grapefruit is best here.
First, add ice to the glass then add the gin, followed by the elderflower syrup and grapefruit juice. Give it all a good stir.
Finally, top the drink with your favourite tonic water.
Thyme or rosemary makes a great garnish here so add a sprig to your glass at the end along with a slice of pink grapefruit.
Luckybird Drinks has crafted a range of premium syrups and purees that will up your cocktail-making game. Pineapple, passion fruit, strawberry. blueberry, African ginger, white grapefruit, cranberry, triple sec and elderflower are the flavours you can expect.
I’m mildly obsessed with this elderflower and plan on adding it to a few desserts too.
Leave the alcohol out to make this an equally delicious mocktail.
