Sweet Cherry Gin & Tonic
cherry-lime simple syrup
- ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sweet cherry juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups gin “Tanqueray Rangpur” is my favorite for this
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 8 cups tonic water
- fresh lime wedges
Place the cherry juice, lime juice and sugar into a small sauce pan and simmer until the sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
In a pitcher stir together the cherry-lime syrup, gin, and lime juice.
When ready to serve fill glasses with ice and pour ¼ cup of the gin mixture into each glass.
Fill the glasses with tonic water, stir and serve with lime wedges.
