Red Spectre cocktail

The red Spectre is a take on the classic gin and tonic, with a bit of a Halloween twist.

It contains 4 simple ingredients, two of them being gin and tonic. 

I used the INDOGGO by Snoop Dog for my drink although you can use any kind of gin you like. 

  • Gin of your choice
  • Lemon Juice
  • Grenadine
  • Tonic Water

If you haven’t heard of INDOGGO Gin then you are in for a treat.

It is a sugar free, gluten free mix of seven premium botanicals infused with all-natural ingredients including strawberry, no sugar with a slightly sweet and fruity finish.
