Garden & Tonic

Scott Phillips

Servings: 1

Created by Wayne Collins and Naren Young, this drink is a minty, herbaceous version of a gin and tonic made with celery bitters. The largest variety of bitters can be found online at CocktailKingdom (most liquor stores carry only one or two brands of bitters, at most).

Visit the In Good Spirits blog to learn more about celery bitters or visit our dedicated Drinks & Entertaining page for more cocktail recipes.


  • 1-1/2 fl.oz. (3 Tbs.) gin
  • 2 or 3 dashes celery bitters (such as The Bitter Truth brand)
  • 2 or 3 dashes elderflower liqueur or maraschino liqueur
  • 4 or 5 mint leaves
  • 1 cucumber slice
  • 1 lime wedge
  • Tonic water


  • Put all of the ingredients except the tonic water in an ice-filled highball glass, stir, and then top with tonic water.
