Cocktails and Recipes

We love getting creative. Here you will find some of our favorite creations. We're always on the hunt for new ideas and new ways to use our tonic to elevate your cocktails, and even your cooking.

Standard gin and tonic

Did you know our Bitter Orange Tonic Syrup is actually the original tonic recipe from the 19th century? Full of fresh citrus flavors this tonic is made for gin.

Directions:

30 ml Bitter Orange tonic syrup

30 ml Any brand of London dry gin

150ml soda/sparkling Water

Pour the gin and tonic together in a lowball glass and mix, pour soda water on top and lightly stir to mix. Add ice and a wedge of lime to garnish.

*if you're using a large ice cube, you may want to add it first to avoid splashing and loosing fizz.

Long Island Iced Tea

The honey flavor that magically appears in our Chamomile and Earl Grey Tonic Syrup makes it perfect to add sweetness and depth to a Long Island Iced Tea. It's so smooth! Our only recommendation is to serve it in a smaller glass to avoid drinking too quickly because it's just such a lovely beverage.

Directions:

30ml plain vodka

30ml London dry or naval strength gin

30ml dry vermouth

30ml Chamomile and Early Grey tonic syrup

Dash of fresh lemon juice

150ml soda water

Mix all ingredients except soda water together with lots of ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake to mix and pour into either a highball glass or smaller to preference and top with soda water at a ratio of one part cocktail mix to two parts soda water on top. Serve with ice.

Pisco Sour

A strong punchy cocktail that you can take your time sipping. The Hibiscus and Fresh Ginger Tonic will add an extra layer of depth to enjoy.

Directions:

45ml Pisco (or tequilia)

15ml Hibiscus and Fresh Ginger Tonic Syrup

15ml triple sec

15ml white Cinzano

Mix all ingredients together with lots of ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake to mix and pour into a champagne coupe, or martini glass. We've used dehydrated pineapple as a garnish.

Fruit Tingle

What a stoopid cocktail! It's a mainstay of 80s tropical holidays and fresh from schoolies teenagers worldwide, but it's also a lot of fun. Only your imagination will limit you, but you can still find ways to elevate this juvenile but hilarious fun cocktail.

Directions:

30ml Blue Curacao

15ml Vodka

15ml Hibiscus and Fresh Ginger Tonic

Soda Water

 

 

Mix all ingredients together with lots of ice in a cocktail shaker except soda water. Shake to mix and pour into the the most whimsical glass you own and top with soda water at a ratio of one part cocktail mix to one part soda water on top. Serve with ice.

If you'd like to make the cocktail a little classier, fill with shaved ice after pouring and top with tonic gently poured on top using the back of a spoon to create a separate layer of rich colour. 

Pepperberry Royale

A modern Australian take on a Kir Royale. Bring your prosecco up a notch. Just a dash of Tasmanian Pepperberry Tonic turns prosecco into Christmas in a glass.

Directions:

Prosecco

Tasmanian Pepperberry and Lemon Myrtle Tonic

 

 

Just a small dash of tonic in the bottom of the glass is all that's needed. The sweetness of the tonic matches well with the dryness of a prosecco. Serve in any champagne glass.

Singapore Sling

A lower alcohol version of a tropical favorite. Substitute the Hibiscus and Ginger Tonic Syrup for the traditional cherry brandy and you'll reduce the sweetness and add layers of earthy depth to balance out the sweetness of the pineapple juice. A great cocktail to serve in a long glass with lots of ice and imaginings of sitting in the warm weather of this cocktail's eponymous origin.

Directions:

45ml London Dry or naval strength gin

15ml Hibiscus and Fresh Ginger Tonic syrup

15ml Triple sec

15ml Red Cinzano

100ml Pineapple juice

 

 

Combine all ingredients except pineapple juice in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice, shake vigorously. Pour into a tall glass and add pineapple juice, stir and top up with more ice.

Hot Toddy!

Our Chamomile and Earl Grey tonic, with its taste of honey, is perfect for any whiskey cocktails, but here in place of the honey it's extra warming and the cocktail hug you need to get you through winter nights.

Directions:

250ml Whiskey

175ml Lemon juice

125 Chamomile and Earl tonic syrup

250 ml Water

1-2 Cinnamon quills

3-4 Whole cloves
