A gin and tonic adapted to the customs of the Argentine coast.

Tereré Tonic

If yerba mate is part of our identity, why not honor it with a drink? Today I bring you this native version of  gin and tonic  with a touch of the Argentine coast.

  • Method: Direct

  • Ice: Rocks

  • Glass: Wine Glass

  • Decoration: Pink Grapefruit Skin


  • 50 ml gin Prince of the Apostles

  • Half tablespoon of coffee flush yerba mate soluble powder Sonia

  • 150 ml white octopus tonic


In a glass of  wine , place the yerba mate powder, add the Apostles and stir to dilute the yerba. Add six ice stones, tonic water and stir. Garnish with pink grapefruit skin.

 About the author 

I grew up in Pinamar, on the coast of Buenos Aires, facing the Argentine Sea, cradled by the tides, that movement of ascent and descent of the waters caused by the Sun and the Moon. The Atlantic Ocean and its horizon reminded me of the place from which my grandparents arrived. The sea is a metaphor for my life. I'm Renato Giovannoni, I was a waiter, gardener and a mason. I studied film in Los Angeles, I also like to draw and received myself as an advertising art director. But I chose to be a bartender, and everything I learned from the places and the people I knew I apply to my drinks. Living is also sailing, and there is a drink to accompany every moment. They know me as  Tato . Welcome to my sea.
