2 ounces gin, preferably Ventura Spirits Company’s
½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
½ ounce freshly squeezed tangerine juice
4 ounces tonic
Garnish with rosemary sprig
Place all ingredients except the tonic into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into an 8-ounce rocks glass over ice. Top with tonic. Garnish with rosemary sprig
