This delicious summer cocktail is the perfect gin and tonic to enjoy before this season ends. Created by the lifestyle blog Vigor and Sage as part of the #DrinkTheSummer series, the Peachy Tomato Basil Gin and Tonic introduces lots of flavor beyond your standard gin, soda water and slice of lime.

To recreate this perfect gin and tonic at home, you will need gin, peach syrup, salt, a small heirloom tomato, tonic water and torn basil leaves. Unlike most simple syrups, which have a 1:1 ratio, the peach syrup that is included here uses a 2:1 ratio.

The recipe for this alcoholic beverage is vegan, soy and gluten-free. This makes it a great option for those with dietary restrictions or allergies.
