Sweet Citrus Gin and Tonic

I seriously don’t think I’ve ever had a cocktail quite as refreshing as this one.  It is so light and delicate.

Gin and Tonic has always been one of my favorites.  It’s an airy cocktail with a good kick in the after-taste.  This sweet version adds a wonderful minty sweetness.  I took it to the next level by adding a ton of citrus to this.

I had so much citrus in my kitchen and I couldn’t think of a better way to use it up than by adding it to this cocktail.  I made a big pitcher of this and it served about 4.
