Gin + Tonic Marmal-ADE Recipe
A Gin + Tonic without tonic water? "How!?", you ask. We sweetened up this Gin + Tonic deal with our very own Lemon + Tonic marmalade. Marmalade, usually bittersweet, is the perfect addition to gin offering the citric punch of lemon while still promising the bitter and refreshing bite of tonic water.
Fresh raspberries add a tart and zappy addition to a libation that will remind you of lemonade on a hot day!
Our Lemon + Tonic Marmalade is easy-peasy lemon-squeezy! With just a little patience, and a lot of lemons, you will have yourself a jar of sunshine in no time at all! Be careful though, everyone might act real jelly around you!
Here's what you will need:
2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of tonic syrup
Balloon or Burgundy glass
Cut lemons lengthwise into 4 quadrants. Thin slice each quadrant to form small triangular lemon slices. Remove all seeds.
Combine lemon with rind intact, water, and sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil while mashing the lemons apart
Bring pot to medium heat, cover, and continue to simmer for 45 minutes on very low heat, sporadically mixing.
