  • I suppose with the sugarcane this would be more exciting. A fine drink, but gin goes better with tonic, and rum is more interesting in other drinks. — ★★★

Is the Morgenthaler tonic syrup recipe the way to go here, or is there another you like?

Thanks,

Zachary


Hey Zach,
That will certainly work, I have added a few of my own tweaks onto his base and I like using some more allspice, some demerara in addition to the agave, and a certain kind of whole chinchona bark that I get from Rod at Rare Tea Cellars here in Chicago. (Right now I am using up some Jack Rudy Tonic syrup that I inherited here, which is good but I like making my own) Part of the fun is the allspice in the syrup and I bag the sugarcane garnish sticks with allspice and lime peel syrup. Also the lime pieces are muddling eigths which may or may not yield more juice than most lime slices.

Thanks,
Kyle


Kyle,

The drink looks awesome - like the best parts of a G&T and a Mojito ran into each other. This is at the top of the list once it cracks 70 here - which may be May ;)

Thanks,

Zachary
