Author Notes: Gin + Tonic, is classic, easy to make, and my preferred choice at restaurants and bars. But it is easy to get stuck eating and drinking the same foods. So I love this updated version of my favorite drink. Adding roasted balsamic strawberries with handfuls of basil. This drink is new, fresh and perfect for warm nights. Enjoy!

Roasted Strawberry Gin + Tonic
