Let’s Talk Bittermens: Tonic Syrup

If you are looking for a top of the line Tonic Syrup look no further. Bittermens knows just how hard it is to find a well-made, delicious, light tonic in a world full of synthetic tonic waters. So they created the Bittermens Common Wealth Tonic Liqueur.

With a 21% alcohol content in each 375 mL, and real all natural quinine, you can be sure that what you add to your cocktail do nothing but enhance it. Bittermens prides them self on their essentially “tonic-y” flavors, knowing that your drink can and should only be so bitter. Because of the alcohol content, this tonic is not for soft drink mixing, but when mixed with some gin and thrown on the rocks, this tonic brings to life just how smooth your gin is.

For the ultimate gin drink Bittermens recommends that you mix your drink as follows:

  • 1 1/2 oz of London Dry Gin (Both Tanqueray and Beefeater work beautifully here)
  • 3/4 oz Commonwealth Tonic Cordial
  • 5 drops Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters
  • 4 ounces of soda water
  • Grapefruit twist

However if you are looking for something a little less bitter:

  • 2 1/4 oz Plymouth Gin
  • 3/4 oz Cocchi Americano
  • 1/2 oz Bittermens Commonwealth Tonic Cordial
  • Lemon twist
