Bon-appe-tea: Hawaiian Punch Honey Lemon Gin And Tonic

The prospect of travelling to a remote tropic might be in limbo indefinitely but there is one thing that we are certain about – we are in need of a good summer drink. Here’s a delightfully easy and refreshing one that you can enjoy while you pretend you’re idling on a sun-chair in Bali (zoom background not included).

Ingredients

Cocktail

  • 2 Foveo Hawaiian Punch teabags
  • 100ml hot water
  • 300ml tonic water, chilled
  • 200ml gin, chilled
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 lemon

Garnish

  • 1/2 lime
  • 4 candied ginger
  • 2 cocktail picks

Method

  1. Steep teabags in hot water for 20 minutes.
  2. Squeeze juice from lemon.
  3. Remove teabags then add honey and lemon juice. Stir well. 
  4. Skewer the candied ginger gently onto cocktail picks and set aside.
  5. Fill glasses with ice and pour gin equally into glasses.
  6. Top the glasses with tea mixture then tonic water. Stir gently to combine.
  7. Garnish with cocktail picks and lime wedges. Serve and enjoy.

Tips: For the young ones, substitute gin with soda of choice or just add more tonic water.
