Recipe — Lemon, Gin and Pickle Soda

Satisfying, delicious and good for our bellies!

While we are very much in the midst of the indulgent season, we're also aware that the approaching New Year can bring on a feeling of reevaluation... So, to get the best of both worlds, we've created a cocktail that is satisfying, delicious and good for our bellies — all at the same time! 

Makes 2

100ml gin
juice of 2 lemons
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 small pickled vegetables of choice (we used dill-pickled radish but a slice of dill pickle or pickled carrot would be great)
1 tablespoon pickling liquid from vegetables
good quality tonic

Place gin, lemon juice, honey and pickling liquid in a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Shake vigorously for 10–15 seconds. Strain into two ice-filled glasses (we used Monmouth green glasses which were a gorgeous match) and top with tonic. Garnish with a pickle and herbs of choice.

Recipe created by Jane Lyons for Tessuti.
Cocktails are served in Monmouth Glass Studio Drinking Glasses, $55 each.
