PLUM GIN & TONIC

Plum Gin & Tonic

2.5 oz plum juice
4 oz gin
2 oz lemon juice
4-6 oz tonic water
ice


I invited some of my best friends over this week for a dinner, a special dinner... I planned out the whole menu with the different flavors in mind. Several "main" flavors made appearances in every single course, and some were present in a couple. I love gin & tonics. I thought I didn't like gin for the longest time and then suddenly last year I started to drink gin & tonics – man! so delicious. I wanted my drinks to also "announce" the flavors to come. There was plum in the dessert I made so I started the evening with a little twist on the classic gin & tonic. It turned out delicious. I saved some of the juice from all the plums I cut up and it added a little sweetness to the drink, but nothing overpowering. 
I've never seen gin & tonics with sugar around the glass but I knew one of my friends was a bit reluctant to try the 'bitter' gin & tonic and I wanted something to cut the bitterness a bit. She drank the whole thing!
