Description

Gin and Tonic has evolved to more than a traditional two-ingredient cocktail.

A perfect example is this coffee-laced version, originally created by Alan Berger of Denver’s Ultreia, which marries the bitterness of java with the sweet tang of tonic.

Berger uses a Colorado gin, with its notes of cardamom and cinnamon, as well as coffee liqueur. The result is smoky, sweet, warm and herbal all at once - perfect for the cold weather. However, in South Africa we have a wide array of options in both the gin and coffee liqueur categories to choose from!

Ingredients

  • A tot of your favourite gin
  • A tot of your favourite coffee liqueur
  • Tonic water
  • To garnish: coffee beans and cocoa nibs
Method
  1. Add the gin and coffee liqueur into a wine glass over ice.

  2. Top with the tonic water and stir gently to combine.

  3. Garnish with coffee beans and cocoa nibs.
