Tonic is good for health and quenches thirst. But its taste is rather bitter, so people learned to mix it with other drinks. The Tonic Fresh cocktail is one of these mixes. Here, tonic is combined with citrous, pineapple juice and raspberry syrup.
You will need (for one portion):
— orange juice — 60 ml / 2 oz
— pineapple juice — 30 ml / 1 oz
— raspberry syrup — 20 ml / 0.6 oz
— half of a lemon
— tonic — 50 ml / 1.7 oz
— orange slice
— highball glass
— measuring cup
— ice tongs
— ice bucket
Fill the highball glass with crushed ice to cool it.
Fill the shaker with ice cubes.
Measure 60 ml / 2 oz of orange juice with the measuring cup and pour into the shaker.
Measure 30 ml / 1 oz of pineapple juice with the measuring cup and pour into the shaker.
Put half of a lemon into the squeezer and press to release juice into the shaker.
Measure 20 ml / 0.6 oz of raspberry syrup with the jigger and pour into the shaker.
Lock the shaker and shake it well, holding it with both hands by the bottom and by the cap. You should hold very tight or the shaker may open!
Shake until the shaker has beads of sweat on the outside.
Pour the mix from the shaker into the chilled glass.
Pour tonic into the glass until it is full.
Garnish with an orange slice and a cocktail straw.
The Tonic Fresh is complete!
