Gin and citrus are old friends. The botanical complexity of gin and the bright acid of grapefruit make a smashing couple. In Europe and particularly Spain, entire drinking establishments are devoted to creating "gintonics." Spanish gin tonics are simply premium gin mixed with premium tonics (no high fructose corn syrup) and fresh fruit or herbs, and are served over ice in an oversized glass. This simple cocktail infuses sweet tart grapefruit, fragrantly floral elderflower, and woodsy rosemary into St. George's Botanivore Gin, a spirit boasting nineteen different herbs and plants and a smooth, warm lingering finish.
