Three Sugar Free Gin and Tonics

I must say I do love a good Gin and Tonic but I'm always counting the calories. Now we can't delete the calories out of the gin but we can certainly take some out of the mixes. Nexba have kindly shared these recipes with Sydney Chic.


This cocktail was inspired by Nexba's cranberry and hibiscus tonic water which adds a lot

of flavour in itself so they have simply added some freshly squeezed lemon, as well as

some cranberry juice (Nexba highly recommend checking the packaging to ensure you

are buying fresh cranberry juice i.e. not from concentrate). Alternatively, you can make it

fresh at home!

This is a great one to make for entertaining guests. It’s so simple and so tasty and ideal for balmy nights!
