The M Gin & Tonic, featured at Chicago’s RPM Steak, is a distinct and luxurious take on the classic G&T. This version combines oak reserve gin, Fernet-Branca, and Carpano Antica Formula vermouth with tonic water, creating a richer, more complex flavor profile. Perfect for those who enjoy a more robust and layered cocktail, here’s how to make this sophisticated drink.


  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
  • 1/2 oz Vermouth
  • 3/4 Tonic Water
  • Oil from an Expressed Orange Peel


  • 2 Dehydrated Lemon Wheels Garnish
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick Garnish
  • 4 Star Anise Pods Garnish


Prepare the Glass:

  • Fill a Burgundy wine glass halfway with cracked ice. The cracked ice helps to chill the drink quickly and evenly.

Combine the Ingredients:

  • Add 1 oz of Blaum Bros. Oak Reserve gin, 1/2 oz of Fernet-Branca liqueur, and 1/2 oz of Carpano Antica Formula vermouth to the glass. These ingredients provide a rich and aromatic base for the cocktail.

Top with Tonic Water:

  • Top off the mixture with 3/4 bottle of Fever-Tree Indian tonic water. The tonic water adds a refreshing and effervescent element to the drink.


  • Garnish with 2 dehydrated (or fresh) lemon wheels, 1 cinnamon stick, and 4 star anise pods. These garnishes add visual appeal and enhance the drink’s aromatic profile.

Express Orange Peel:

  • Express the oil from an orange peel over the top of the drink. This step releases the citrus oils, adding a fresh and fragrant touch to the cocktail.


  • Serve immediately and enjoy your M Gin & Tonic.


The M Gin & Tonic offers a richer and more luxurious take on the classic cocktail. The combination of oak reserve gin, Fernet-Branca, and Carpano Antica Formula vermouth creates a complex and layered flavor profile that is both robust and satisfying. Perfect for a special occasion or a sophisticated evening, this drink is sure to impress.
