One of our absolute favorite hotels is the Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. With gorgeous & chic Southern décor, live music and delicious hand-crafted cocktails, The Mansion Bar gets our vote for one of the coziest bars in America. On our last visit, we sampled a variety of their house specialties and managed to wheedle the recipes out of the hotel just for you!
This variation on a classic cocktail is one of our favorite ways to serve a G&T. A Mansion staple, the Gin & Tonic is made with Junipero gin, house-made tonic, a Kaffir lime leaf & grapefruit zest and delicately poured over ice. Richer and more potent than your average Gin & Tonic, this one is layered with intense flavors…but is still as refreshing as it is drinkable!
2 oz. Junipero Gin
¾ oz. House Tonic (but we love Fever Tree!)
Dash Angostura Bitters
2 oz. club soda
Kaffir Lime Leaf
1. Add the Gin, House Tonic, and Bitters to a stemless burgundy glass with large ice cubes.
2. Stir until combined
3. Top with club soda
4. Garnish with Grapefruit zest, and Kaffir Lime Leaf
