This drink is a special treat for our olive oil lovers. In our shop, we always talk about how our balsamic vinegars go well in specialty drinks, but we never think about olive oil.


Not too long ago, we had the oppertunity to Zoom call with our distrubitor and the farm owners of our popular Spanish Melgarejo Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We learned so much in this call, but what caught our attention is when they told us their olive oil goes very well in gin and tonics. Intrigued, we tried it that very evening. And it was good! We couldn't resist sharing this with you!


This limited production Hojiblanca is herbaceous and complex with hues of "fruit" and a beautiful emerald color. This unique batch is possibly one of their finest. It has pronounced notes of fruit, sweet green tomato and savory garden herbs. The finish is pungent, has desirable pepper notes and slight bitterness. This olive oil adds a roundness to the drink that will leave you wanting to make your gin and tonic this way for now on.


Ingredients

  • Gin
  • Robust Spanish Melgarejo Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Tonic water

Directions

  1. Pour gin and tonic together into glass (choose prefered amount to each)
  2. Drizzle the Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil into glass; enough to leave small bubbles at the top. Enjoy!

It has been a hot and humid summer here in New England. Whenever we need to cool off a little, a nice cold drink is always enjoyable. This recipe is great to have on a hot day, or for a party. If you want to add a little extra to the drink, turning it into a cocktail is always fun.


Our Blackberry-Ginger Balsamic is wonderfully sweet, pleasingly tart and aromatic with the clean, natural flavor of ginger. It is great to spruce up any drink.
