Frozen Gin and Tonic

IMG_3686

It’s hot in Portland. I was making my sons a frozen blueberry and lemonade smoothie after school and I thought to myself,  hmmm, if I put a gin and tonic in the blender will it be delicious?  And then I answered myself. Yes, it will.

  • 1 C. ice
  • 2 oz. gin, I used Portland Dry Gin from New Deal Distillery
  • 4 oz. tonic, I used Schweppes because I am a classy lady
  • 1 small lime slice

I use a Ninja smoothie maker/blender. Careful not to fill it too full because the tonic will bubble a bit and the whole thing will expand.  In my smoothie cup the ingredients filled it about half-full. Blend all the ingredients, including the lime slice together until smooth, about 30 seconds. Serves 1
