Franklin & Sons Rhubarb with Hibiscus Tonic - 20cl
Taking inspiration from historic London duo the Franklin Brothers, Franklin & Sons has been making an inspired range of premium mixers since its launch in 2016. While the brand’s namesake sold soft drinks out of their family’s confectioners store back in 1886, the modern iteration has a much, much bigger reach.
The modern-day Franklin & Sons may have better equipment to hand, but it has kept that Victorian-thinking when it comes to inventing flavours. The finest quality ingredients are sourced from across the globe, with each bottle carbonated to a beautifully ebullient point of perfection.
Hibiscus is a mad ingredient because it can’t quite decide what it wants to be. All at once oily, fruity and floral, the flower provides a rich, bold sweetness and a beautiful hue that will answer to all of your pink gin fantasies. Still, it’s no folly; the rhubarb provides a tart backdrop, ensuring that the tonic remains complex and interesting. Try with a classic gin and a juniper garnish to see just how brilliant this can be.
