DIY Citrus Gin and Tonic Bar Cover

I wanted to share some easy mix and match recipes that are perfect for entertaining. I love sharing recipes that are an easy spin on a classic. Today’s classic is an easy gin and tonic citrus bar. Gin and tonics are two ingredient cocktails that any one can make.

First you can set up a DIY gin and tonic bar that features several types of gins as well as tonic waters. For my bar I also set out different citrus fruit that included lemons, limes, grapefruits, and oranges. I also had orange and grapefruit juices. Your guests can customize the perfect citrus gin and tonic by adding a splash of juice or just a fresh citrus slice to enhance their own cocktail.

Are you entertaining for a group this weekend? If so, consider making this easy DIY Citrus Gin and Tonic Bar!
