For Valentine’s Day: The His & Hers Gin and Tonics

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and if you have a special someone in your life (or even if you don’t), you may want to make a few drinks. These gin and tonic variations are labeled ‘his’ and ‘hers’, but don’t let yourself be limited. I enjoy a nice manly cocktail every now and then – and the pretty pink ‘hers’ variation is so delicious that men might find themselves reaching for it by the end of the night.

I was inspired in my creation by this earlier attempt at ‘his and hers’ gin and tonics. This time, I decided to go big, with Averna, an Italian amaro, for the guys, and St. Germain and grapefruit for the ladies. Just the thing for a romantic night in.
