This gin and tonic puff puff recipe hasn’t been for a while. I played around with the idea when I started the puff-puff series two years ago, but only this year I’ve been doing it. I was worried about the result because I needed to get a good gin liqueur or at least a very syrup-like gin.
The best way to preserve the gin and tonic flavor is to make it as a side syrup that drips onto the puff puff, rather than including it in the puff puff batter. This is probably the best way to go, as the gin and tonic acidity may not go well with the puff puff batter anyway.
This puff puff can be topped with candied lemon, candied orange, or crispy to cut the sweetness. You can also add rosemary or thyme to the syrup for a savory version of the gin and tonic puff puff. I think this gin and tonic puff puff is too decadent to enjoy for yourself, so enjoy it with your friends.
