Jance Honey Tonica is inspired by Spanish Gin Tonica recipes which carefully pair specific flavour profiles of Gin with Tonic and botanical garnishes, served with large pieces of ice in a balloon like Copa de Balon or Red Wine glass. The Honey Tonica takes a queue from Peruvian Pisco and Tonic where the Gin Tonica template is applied to Peruvian Pisco Brandy. Here Jance Honey Spirit is paired with a salty umami tonic with citrus and coastal herbs including salt bush, garnished with fresh lemon wheels, thyme, and bee pollen.
1 ½ -2 oz. Jance Honey Spirit
3-4 oz. Coastal Tonic, Strangelove, chilled, to serve
Ice, 2-3 large pieces, to serve
Garnish: lemon wheels, fresh thyme sprigs, bee pollen
