The Crafted Tonic

Bring water and sugar to a low boil in a pot. Once boiled add remaining ingredients and reduce the heat to a simmer for 20mins. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain through cheese cloth which provides a fine strain to eliminate all particles in mixture. A great substitute for tonic syrup if you don’t want to make homemade tonic syrup you can use Porters tonic syrup based out of Calgary.

Shake all ingredients and strain into a martini style glass or coupe.
Garnish with a lemon wheel floating in the glass

The Crafted Tonic

This cocktail was one of the first Eau Claire gin cocktails from the cocktail menu we created at Charcut Roast house. The recipe for the home made tonic syrup was one Matt Larocque with Charcut Roast house, found that works very well with Eau Claire gin. This takes a few specialty items but can be found locally and made easily.

3 cups white sugar
