Savor the Summer Breeze: Indulge in 3 Vibrantly Refreshing Cocktails with Basil & Salt

Raise a Toast to Memorial Day Weekend: We have assembled 3 Mixologist Delights to Share with Friends as Summer Unfolds

Cucumber and Tonic

Recipe adapted or created by H. Joseph Ehrmann


  • 3 oz Fresh Victor Cucumber & Lime
  • 1.5oz gin
  • 1-2oz tonic water


  1. In a tall glass, build all ingredients and top with ice. Stir gently to combine.
  2. Garnish with a lime wedge and a cucumber wheel.

(For a Cucumber Collins substitute Soda for Tonic)

Grapefruit & Rosemary Gin & Tonic

Recipe adapted or created by H. Joseph Ehrmann


  • 1 oz Fresh Victor Grapefruit & Sea Salt
  • 1.5 oz gin
  • 4 oz tonic water
  • 2 rosemary sprigs
  • 1-2 grapefruit wheels / half wheels (whatever fits your glass)


Easier (less rosemary flavor): Build all ingredients over ice in a large goblet glass (red wine) and garnish.


Optional (more rosemary flavor):

  1. In a cocktail shaker, lightly muddle one rosemary sprig, cover with Fresh Victor, gin and ice, shake lightly and strain over ice in a large goblet glass (red wine), top with tonic water and garnish with the grapefruit wheel and other rosemary sprig.

Substitute a non-alcoholic gin replacement (e.g. Ritual, Monday, CleanCo, etc.)
