- Grate one lemon into a cup and set aside for step 3.
- Cut 6 lemons (including the grated one) in half crosswise, then squeeze the 12 halves of lemon into a cup and set aside for step 3 (note: 1 lemon will yield approximately 1.00 oz fresh lemon juice – you will need 6.00 oz for your batch).
- Measure and add all ingredients to a large container and whisk to incorporate the ingredients and flatten the tonic (note: freezing carbonated drinks makes air holes so it’s better to get as many out as possible.)
- Open a freezer tube and place it upright in a tall glass.
- Fill the tube with 3.00 oz of your cocktail batch with the help of a small funnel.
- Make sure there is 1 inch of space between the liquid and the zipper in order to give the cocktail enough room to expand when it freezes.
- Gently let excess air out, then close the zipper.
- Repeat Steps 3 through 6 for all 10 tubes.
- Store tubes in freezer for a minimum of 8 hours (note: freezing the tubes upright will help with any leakage issues).
- Once frozen you may use the tear tab for easy access, or you can open the top at the zipper so that you can wash and reuse your tubes!
