Holiday Gin & Tonic

Why serve your guests a plain old Gin & Tonic this holiday season when you can serve them this spruced up variation on the classic? Made with an Old Tom style gin (preferably one that’s been barrel-aged, like Ransom), dry vermouth and craft tonic water, this holiday G&T comes garnished with a sprig of fresh rosemary, which hits you with an aromatic whiff of Christmas as you bring it to your lips.
