3 Gin Day Cocktails

Bet you didn’t even know we had a gin day, but here it is: June 13.

Since we’re guessing you already have a favourite gin (or, check out Death’s Door and Eau Claire) in your arsenal, let’s talk about the other side of gin’s most famous equation: tonic.

Q Tonic is bringing the artisanal ethos to the word of tonic water. It’s made in New York, with quinine from the Andes and organic agave from Mexico, and best of all: no high-fructose corn syrup. The agave is sweet enough.
