Looking for a drink of choice over the upcoming festive season? Here’s something you can make at home.

Last week we showed you how to make a London Dry gin. Now, this week we’re going to show you how you can craft a homemade Gin & Tonic. Using a soda maker and our recently launched Tonic Water Flavouring Kit, you’ll create a clean & refreshing tonic with a well-balanced sweetness & acidity, hints of lemon and a delicate quinine bitterness.

Find it at your local home brew shop.

You’ll need:
