This Raspberry and Lemon Gin & Tonic is a super refreshing springtime cocktail that puts a fresh twist on an old favorite.
The classic Gin and Tonic is my go to drink. I always have supplies on hand. But if you are looking for something a little different this is a great option to try. Fresh raspberries and lemon juice add a light refreshing flavor.
Raspberries are a great addition to any cocktail, so I try to keep them on hand during the summer. They brighten up any cocktail, like this one, or you can muddle them and make a beautiful Raspberry Gin Fizz.
As an added garnish, this cocktail also benefits from an extra raspberry or two tossed in. A great way to keep this cocktail cool, without watering it down, is to freeze the raspberries.
