12 Tonics to Christmas: T&T (Tequila & Tonic, with a bite)

The fragrant crack of the cardamom and rose transports you to the middle east for a festive season filled with spice and flair.  Think far-away lands filled with myrrh and frankincense, especially during this time of the year.  See in your mind’s eye the heaps of spices, loud chatter of merchants and piles of delicate rose petals surrounded by the smell of rose essence and oriental mysteries.

Featuring the “newish” addition to the Toni Glass Collection is their Rose-flavoured tonic.

12 Tonics to Christmas: Spanish Sunset

We are halfway through the #12TonicsToChristmas series and feeling nostalgic….

Inspired by my time spent in Barcelona, on balmy summer evenings strolling the bustling streets and dropping by a street cafe for a refreshing drink, as you watch the late sunset between the historic buildings.

It was only obvious to add this orange-and-rum creation to my #12TonicsToChristmas list.  Sit back and sip this drink as you think about what you’ve survived in 2018.
