The classic cocktail gets a crafty boost. Trust us: You’ve never sipped anything like it.
THE GIN: Peach Street—the spirits spinoff of SKA Brewing—steeps Jackelope Gin ($33) with hand-picked juniper and seven other botanicals for a soft, foresty dram.
THE TONIC: Skip the bottled stuff: Mix small-batch, concentrated Tomr’s Tonic ($12, a blend of cane sugar, Cinchona bark and organic herbs and spices) with seltzer for the real thing. Honestly, we’ll never use cheap-o tonic again!
THE DRINK: Stir up 1 ounce tonic, 2 ounces gin and 3 ounces seltzer. It’s superbly herbal with a citrus flash, and so silky-smooth it’s dangerous.
