Easy Frozen Gin and Tonic Recipe - delicious frozen gin and tonics loaded with flavor and easy to make in a big batch for a party!
There is nothing better than a nice cold gin and tonic in summer - G&T's are my absolute favorite drink, and this frozen version is one of the best ways to relax in summer!
My husband has been tinkering with some frozen versions of our favorite cocktails with tonic syrup - twists on gin and tonic classics like our Cardamom and Juniper Gin and Tonic!
These frozen gin and tonics are one of our favorite drinks in summer - my husband will mix up a big batch and leave them in the freezer, so we can make a quick cooling drink whenever we need.
You don't need any fancy equipment for this drink - just 2 28" jars with plastic, tight-fitting lids, a freezer, tonic syrup, and gin!
We hope you love this slushy frozen gin and tonic recipe as much as we do!

Easy Gin and Tonic Slush
Freezing tonic water presents a problem - the bubbles don't freeze, flavors become watered down, and the texture is too icy, not like a snowcone or slushy.
This easy gin and tonic recipe keeps a perfect texture, and uses half the ingredients of other frozen G&T's, by using tonic syrup instead of tonic or simple syrup.
Use Tonic Syrup

We really love the granita-style slushy texture tonic syrup gives this cocktail - and how it doesn't water down the flavor.
We personally think Jack Rudy tonic syrup is the best tonic syrup we've used.
For a sweeter kick, you can also use Jack Rudy Elderflower tonic syrup.

Freeze 6-10 Hours For Slush
After freezing for 6 hours, your frozen gin and tonics will start to become lightly slushy.
After 10 hours, your frozen gin and tonics will be more of a hard slush.
Freeze Overnight For Granita
After freezing overnight (12+ hours), your frozen gin and tonics will be very slushy - use a spoon to scrape up scoops of the cocktail and place in a glass.
How To Store Frozen Gin and Tonics
Keep mixed gin and tonic ingredients in an airtight container in the freezer for up to four months.
Flavor will start to degrade in freezer after a few months.
Use Spill-Proof Lid
I reccomend using a plastic spill proof lid for a mason jar.
Metal jar lids can give a tinny taste to frozen drinks, so for best results, use a plastic lid.
If you don't have a jar, use a glass food storage container or tupperware to store in freezer.
If using a plastic container, try to consume within a few days for best flavor.
