This gin and citrus cocktail tastes amazingly light and fresh. It’s all natural, slightly sweet and very citrusy. This beautiful drink is just perfect to share with your friends!
So it all started with stevia. We found a beautiful little plant at a supermarket and I knew I have to buy it. I’ve never tried fresh stevia before, but I knew it’s pretty sweet. It is! It’s more than just sweet! We could hardly eat a leaf, it was so unbelievable sweet…So it was clear it’s crazy to cook or bake with it. And somehow it was also clear it is going to be amazing in refreshers and cocktails.
Gin is probably my favorite alcohol, I love it especially with a lots of citruses, fresh basil and a little sweetener. If you don’t have stevia, you can use 1-2 teaspoon of maple syrup instead. You can also make the drink lighter adding a bit more water, it’s gonna be just so refreshing!
