The perfect cocktail for Thanksgiving morning.
Because if I’m cooking, I’m drinking, even if it’s 6 AM.
This drink was inspired by the Tucson Tonic at one of our favorite burger joints in Tucson, Truland Burgers & Greens. We’ve done our best to recreate their perfect recipe.
Gin, Tonic, and Grapefruit Juice, and a dash of Orange Bitters
- 2 oz of your favorite gin
- 1 oz grapefruit juice
- 3 1/2 oz tonic
- 1 dash of orange bitters
Pour gin and juice over ice.
Top with tonic.
Add a dash of bitters and stir.
