A Gin & Tonic needs no introduction - this classic, cool highball is endlessly refreshing. It was invented as a remedy for malaria by officers of the British Army based in India. Quinine (the base of tonic water) was the cure for the disease, but to make it more palatable, gin, sugar and lime were added. We sub Kumquat-pop for lime to bring you an autumnal twist on the classic. We recommend this with a more floral gin (St. George Botanivore or Amass), to compliment the floral qualities of Kumquat-pop.
2 oz Kumquat-pop
1 oz gin
2 oz Q Mixers Tonic Water
Optional 2 drops of vanilla extract
Build in glass. Top with tonic. Give it a stir, and garnish with fresh mint and lime.
