Chill your glass.
Now add the Juniper berries to your glass. Before adding the Juniper berries, gently crush them with the top of your fingers. This will help to release the aromas. Cut the half apricot in 4 pieces add them, pour your favorite gin. Let it rest for 1 or 2 minutes and stir.
It's time to add your ice, use plenty of it, to reduce melting; this will also help enhance the flavors of your drink.
Pour your favorite tonic, it should bubbly and cold. As you pour, keep it close to the ice. This will reduce the amount of lost gas. Stir gently.
Let it rest! It is important to let it rest about 30–40 seconds before drinking so both gin and tonic absorb all the flavors of the botanicals.
