Winter Gin and Tonic
Serves: 1 drink
Spruced up with a charred orange juice instead of lime and a sprig of sage, this winter gin and tonic is the same refreshing drink that we all love, but with some warmer flavors for the winter months.
  • 3 ounces of D. George Benham's Sonoma Dry Gin
  • 2 charred wedges of orange (We charred ours under the broiler, but they can also be charred with a blow torch.), one to squeeze into the drink and one to garnish with
  • 1 sage plume
  1. Fill a highball or rocks glass with ice. (We used a large ice sphere so the ice would melt slower and the drink would not be watered down.)
  2. Top with gin, a squeeze of the orange wedge and tonic.
  3. Garnish with orange wedge and sage.
