Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup loosely packed mixed fresh herb leaves basil, parsley, tarragon, coriander or thyme
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped ripe summer tomato
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped English cucumber
  • ice cubes
  • 2-4 shots dry gin 2-4 fl oz (depending on your preferred strength)
  • 1 bottle or can tonic water well chilled
  • 4 sprigs fresh herbs to garnish

Instructions

  • Choose two sturdy, 16-ounce glasses, such as a highball, or use two pint mason jars.
  • Divide the herbs between the two glasses. Tip equal parts chopped tomato and cucumber on top.
  • Use a long-handles bar muddler (or wooden spoon) to crush both herbs and vegetables into a fragrant pulp.
  • Fill the glasses three-quarters full with ice and stir. Add one or two shots of gin to each glass, depending on how boozy you like it! Stir with a long handled bar spoon.
  • Top up drink with tonic water and garnish with a few fresh herb sprigs. Enjoy immediately.
