The mixture of gin and herbs is a match made in heaven, as herbs are a wonderful garnish for gin. With tonic in the mix, you can expect to be wowed by the outcome. You can use a botanical infuser machine to create herb-infused water for this beverage or you can simply get a pre-made herbal elixir to create a mouth-watering herb-infused gin cocktail. For this, you’ll need a herb-infused syrup that contains a minimum of 10 milligrams of dry herbs. To get your desired effect, you can use up to 25 milligrams.
