Can a classic cocktail be a fresh hostess gift? It can when it involves a great quality gin (I am partial to Tanqueray) and an organic agave-sweetened tonic water.
I was recently introduced to Q Tonic, a snazzy tonic water sold in glass bottles. It’s pretty to look at — which makes it a visually appealing present. But is there substance behind the styling? Yes.
The tonic water isn’t over-sweetened. It has a pleasant, milder flavor that compliments the gin, letting both components shine through. Best of all, Q Tonic has 60% fewer calories and 85% lower glycemic index than regular tonic water, according to the company. So, it’s a better-for-you option as well.
It’s available in the small bottles you see above and a larger bottle that works perfectly with a bottle of gin for a gift.
How to Package Gin and Tonic as a Hostess Gift:
Package the bottles simply in a double bottle bag (like this one at Amazon.com or a beautiful handcrafted double bottle tote from Etsy). Be sure to throw in a lime too (gotta have that twist!) or stick it in a small cellophane bag and attach it to the bag handles.
