As the cocktail renaissance developed in the Twin Cities, friends Kari Madore and Julia Brosz got to thinking: "is a low quality, mass produced mixer really the best option to combine with a premium, handcrafted liquor?" From that question Blue Henn Tonic was born. Made from carefully steeped cinchona bark, organic herbs, and natural citrus oils, this artisanal tonic syrup will change the way you think about tonic.
Look for it in your favorite liquor store.
