12 Tonics to Christmas: Grapefruit Fizz

My fifth day on the #12TonicsToChristmas; today we make it pink and bubbly.  Such a girly drink to start the #FestiveSeason.

About Chinchona Premium Tonic

They take great pride in the quality of their backbone of Chinchona Premium Tonic, the natural quinine.  The finest cinchona bark is sourced from Peru and Congo, from where it’s shipped to Germany to refine and extract the superior, natural quinine.

ENHANCING FLAVOR, NOT DISGUISING IT:

The natural fructose and sucrose we use in an invert sugars has a much better synergy with acidity and fruit flavors, creating a more balanced drink.

TEXTURE SOFTENING:

Invert sugars’ natural affinity for water gives Chinchona Premium Tonic a soft,
pliable texture and extended shelf life.

CRYSTALLISATION MINIMISATION:

Invert sugars slows down and decreases crystallisation, something that is found in other synthetic tonics. The result? Chinchona has a smooth, superior mouth feel.

LOWER SUGAR CONTENT: (5.9G TOTAL SUGARS PER 100ML)

Too many tonics on the market mask your favorite gin because they have too much sugar. With a lower sugar content our tonic enhances your favorite gin, rather than disguise it.

 

Made with Ruby Grapefruit and superior natural Quinine, Chinchona Premium Ruby Grapefruit tonic is a refreshingly dry and crisp tonic that delivers the ultimate balance between sour and semi-sweet. 

The result is a beautiful pink tonic that’s fresh, unique and simply delicious.
