Rum & Tonic

"I love a Rum & Tonic during the summer,” says Ashwin Vilkhu, the co-owner of Saffron in New Orleans. “It’s a great alternative to a G&T because it’s light and refreshing all the while having depth of flavor." This drink is served Spanish-style in a large wine goblet, garnished with a lot of the ingredients whose aromas and flavors either compliment or coax out those in the rum.

  • 1 oz Paranubes Oaxaca rum
  • Fever-Tree Premium Indian tonic water, to top
