Garden Party

-2oz Citadelle Gin

-0.5-1oz Lemon Juice

-2-3 Dashes Grapefruit Bitters

-2-3 Dashes Cardamom Bitters

-5-6oz Fever Tree Cucumber Tonic Water

-Garnishes: Mint and Blood Orange Slices

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice pour in gin, lemon juice, and bitters. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Pour in to a glass with ice and top with tonic water. Garnish with mint and blood orange slices.

Note: It’s important to agitate the mint, which is where you slap it a bit, in order to release the oils for a nice essence before you add it as a garnish. If you can’t find Citadelle Gin you can replace it with another French Gin or any other gin with significant floral undertones. Never be afraid to ask someone at your local store for help.
