Rosemary Citrus Gin + Tonic

This drink makes use of winter citrus fruits and rosemary not just for garnish, but to masterfully compliment the flavor of gin. The rosemary adds a not-quite-pine yet herbal hint of flavor. The Meyer lemons used in this recipe are sweeter than regular lemons, and their rind carries a highly fragrant and spicy aroma that combines beautifully in this cocktail.

Ingredients:

1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1 clementine
½ Meyer lemon (juiced)
2 ounces of Tropicana tangerine lemonade (or tangerine juice)
2 ounces gin
3 ounces tonic water
Clementine and lemon slices, additional rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle half of your clementine with a large sprig of rosemary.
  2. Add the juice from half a Meyer lemon, gin, and some ice.
  3. Shake vigorously and strain into a glass.
  4. Top with tangerine juice/tangerine lemonade and tonic.
  5. Garnish the glass with slices of clementine and/or lemon and add a sprig of rosemary as a cocktail stirrer.

With the release of our latest Evergreen Tangerine products, I thought it would be fun to celebrate cooler temperature and the incoming holidays with botanical facts. I created Evergreen Tangerine with the idea of bringing winter into the shower - without smelling like a candle. This soap and scrub are inspired by wintery walks through serene evergreen forests and the seasonal brightness of sweet tangy tangerines.
