I seem to have skipped MDL GinTonic Nos. 3–6. I’ll have to go back and try them again to make sure they’re worth posting.
However, MDL GinTonic No. 7 is a good one:
MDL GinTonic No. 7
- 1.5 oz gin
- .5 oz hibiscus-infused gin
- .25 Violette syrup
It is distinctly floral without being sweet. I’m still thinking about bitters; I thought I had some 18•21 Bitters hibiscus bitters, but apparently I’m out.
This is stupid-easy: put some gin in a glass container, throw in some hibiscus buds, let it sit for an hour or two. Strain. Done.
- 2 oz gin
- 1 oz violet syrup
- 1 oz simple syrup
So you can see that this is kind of an Ultimate Gin gintonic, with three different approaches to gin all piling together.
