Ingredients
For the cocktail:
  • 2 oz Empress 1908 Gin (or gin of choice)
  • 6 whole homemade herbed ice cubes (optional)
  • 4 slices lime
  • 1 oz homemade basil, sage and mint sugar free simple syrup (optional and to taste)
  • 4 oz Diet tonic water
  • Garnish with: fresh basil and sage
For the herbed sugar free simple syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1.25 cups allulose
  • handful of fresh herbs (we used sage, basil and mint)
Instructions
  1. Prepare your herbed ice cubes ahead of time if you want by cutting up herbs of choice and then freezing them into an ice cube mold. Let them freeze for 4-6 hours. This is optional, you could use regular ice.

  2. To make your simple syrup, combine your herbs, water and allulose in a pan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Strain away the herbs and discard. Store the simple syrup in the fridge to cool until you're ready to use it.

  3. In a glass, add ice cubes, lime slices and then add in your optional herbed simple syrup.

  4. Pour in the gin, tonic water, and give it a good stir. Garnish with fresh herbs.
