If you are the latter, then there are a whole lot of ideas waiting for you in this blog! We’ll be giving an extra edge to the classic G&T with the help of flavoured syrups.

Experiment with different flavours

You can discover new taste combinations by experimenting with different flavours, so don’t be afraid to try something new and mix it up.
Overall, using flavoured syrup is an awesome way to elevate your G&T game and try different kinds of flavours. Get creative with flavour combinations and discover endless possibilities!
Balance the flavours
Experimenting with different flavours is all cool and fun, but eventually, you want good taste, right? For that you need to balance the flavour in your G&T. Gradually add more syrup until you reach the right consistency by adding a small amount at a time.
It is also important to keep in mind that tonic water has its own taste, in addition to gin, tonic, and syrup. You should use about 1/4 to 1/2 ounces of syrup per two ounces of gin and tonic. You may, however, adjust the amount according to your personal taste.
With Swa Artisanal Syrups you can ensure that your G&T will not be overpowered by the flavours of the syrup but would be a great compliment instead.
Experiment with different garnishes
In the first place, why would you like to garnish your G&T? For two reasons – add a hint of flavour to your drink and make it more appealing to look at. The right garnish is extremely important because it can add an extra layer of flavour and aroma to your G&T. Try experimenting with different garnishes to find the perfect match for your flavoured syrup.
For example, if you’re going for a citrus flavour, then garnishing your G&T with a strip of fresh orange will enhance the floral notes in the syrup. Similarly, adding a slice of grapefruit to a honey syrup G&T can bring out the sweetness in the syrup.
Use high-quality ingredients
When making cocktails, it’s essential to use high-quality ingredients to ensure the best possible flavour. This includes using premium gin and tonic water, as well as high-quality flavoured syrups.
At Swa, we pride ourselves on using only the best natural ingredients in our products. Our syrups are made with real fruit and natural flavours, so you can be sure that you’re getting a high-quality product that will enhance your G&T experience.
Finally, don’t forget about the presentation! A well-presented cocktail can be just as enjoyable as a delicious one. Try using colourful straws or stylish glassware to make your G&T look even more inviting.
You can also try experimenting with different ice cubes to give your cocktail an edge. For example, using flavoured ice cubes made with the same syrup you’re using in your G&T can enhance the flavour even further.
In conclusion, adding flavoured syrups to your G&T is an easy and delicious way to enhance your summer cocktail game. With so many flavours, you’re sure to find the perfect match for your taste preferences. Remember to balance the flavours, use high-quality ingredients, and get creative with your presentation for the perfect G&T experience.
