Syrup - British Colonial Style Tonic

El Guapo British Colonial Style Tonic Syrup

This tonic was created through much research of classic recipes from a time when tonic was for more than just flavour. Original tonics were created using cinchona bark and it was the source of quinine. It's purpose? To prevent malaria! In order to offset the extreme bitterness of quinine, sugar was added for sweetness and citrus was added for tartness. Additional herbs and spices were added to various classic recipes.

Through research of those original recipes, we offer British Colonial Style Tonic for your drinking pleasure. IT IS DELICIOUS! This is what your Gin & Tonic was meant to taste like! Our Tonic is highly concentrated and very thick to give you the best value and flavour on the market.

Flavour/Aroma: Full of fresh bright citrus and slightly floral flavours with a lingering but pleasant bitterness.

Ingredients: filtered water, cane sugar, cinchona bark (quinine), lime, lemon, grapefruit, orange, lemongrass, ginger, spices.

1/4 to 1/2 parts Tonic Syrup, 2 parts Gin (or Vodka), 3 parts carbonated water.
