How to Level Up Your Gin and Tonic

If you’re a gin and tonic lover like myself but looking to sip something that feels a little more like Spring, then you’ll love the Pineapple Gin and Tonic! It’s crafted with just a few more ingredients than your traditional G&T but bursting with fresh, fruity, and delicious flavors.

For this recipe, I added fresh pineapple juice and bitters to give this classic cocktail more depth, color, and flavor. Simply add the ingredients in and stir it up for a quick and easy cocktail that can be enjoyed in a few minutes. 

Ingredients for the Pineapple Gin and Tonic

For a simple yet delicious cocktail, give the Pineapple Gin and Tonic a try! 

  • Gin: this recipe works great with a more botanical-tasting gin like Hendrick’s Gin or The Botanist, but check out this guide here to finding the best gin for your drink.
  • Pineapple juice: Fresh or store-bought pineapple juice works in this recipe. If you’re juicing your own pineapple make sure you choose a ripe pineapple, so the sweetness is just right. Plus, the sweeter the juice the better it balances with the bitters.
  • Tonic water: for an effervescent finish, add some tonic water. I used Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water, but check this guide here to see what other options would work. 
  • Bitters: Top this cocktail with a few dashes of bitters, I used Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Lime wedge and pineapple: garnish this fun mixed drink with a lime wheel, pineapple slice, and a pineapple leaf, if desired.

How to Make the Pineapple Gin and Tonic

This recipe could not be easier! In three, simple steps you’ll take your G&T from bland to grand by adding some fresh and exciting ingredients.

Start by filling a glass with ice and adding in your preferred gin. Note: I like to use a more botanical-tasting gin for my gin-based cocktails and I find this recipe works best with mellower gins. Next, add the pineapple juice and tonic water, and stir together with a bar spoon. For the last step, top your mixed drink with a few dashes of bitters (I used Peychaud’s Bitters for this recipe) and garnish with a lime wheel and pineapple slice, if desired. Cheers!
