Blackberry & Thyme Gin and Tonic Recipe by Jette Virdi
Wonderfully fruity and floral, this Dingle gin and tonic cocktail is a perfect twist on a classic recipe. The thyme syrup works wonderfully with Dingle gin and the frozen blackberries offer a twist to an ice cube that adds another depth of flavour. Perfect for these sunny Autumn days.
