This Gin & Tonic Cocktail with Fynbos honey and Spekboom is a proudly South African cocktail just in time for the festive season. It celebrates everything we love about this country.
This zesty and aromatic cocktail uses spekboom (elephant bush) as a garnish but it’s so much more than that. This indigenous plant is stacked with nutrients and is a very important plant to many cultures in health and nutrition. It grows quite quickly so it is easy to cultivate and also keeps the bee population alive. This cocktail is sweetened with proudly South African Fynbos honey for an even more authentic taste. Also, the L-Gin Plush Craft Gin is made with locally grown Juniper and rounded off with coriander, lemon peel and angelica root to round off a well balanced and smooth gin.
50 L L-Gin Plush Craft oak matured gin
5 ml Fynbos honey
20 ml naartjie juice (freshly squeezed)
Fitch & Leeds Indian Tonic
