Check These Tips for Making Gin and Tonic Puff-Puff


Gin and Tonic Puff-Puff:

For lovers of snacks. Here is a new recipe for your puff-puff making. I got this article from a Afrolems. I found the article useful for bakers and chefs out. Incase you would want to try this out, Listen to they have to say.

This gin and tonic puff puff recipe has been a long time coming. I played around with the idea two years ago when I started my puff puff series and only got to execute it this year. I was worried about the outcome because I needed to have access to a good gin liqueur or at least a very syrupy gin.

The best way to retain the flavour of the gin and tonic is not to include it in the batter of the puff puff but instead to make it as a side syrup to drizzle over the puff puff. The acidity of the gin and tonic may not go well with the puff puff batter anyway so this is probably the best way to go.

This puff puff can be topped with candied lemons or candied oranges or something crunchy to cut through the sweetness. You can also go the route of adding rosemary or thyme to your syrup for a fragrant version of your gin and tonic puff puff. Enjoy this gin and tonic puff puff with friends as I believe it is way too decadent to enjoy by yourself.
