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.

On the #12TonicsToChristmas blog series I looked at showcasing the Tonic, more than the alcohol or the other bits and pieces.  

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

12 Tonics to Christmas: Rosemary & Pear Ice Lollies

Summer sun and holiday fun! Cool off with these funky and delicious ice lollies; which will leave you thinking they are “naughty” but they’re so “nice”.  Suitable for adults, and even kids with a discerning palate.  I added extra bits of pear to the mix for added texture, this mixture will also freeze well in a container for a fresh sorbet.
Here’s my 12 Tonics to Christmas ice lollies with Pear Toni Glass 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.
