Gin & Tonic Fudge

Ever since I saw that fabulous White Russian Fudge over at Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, I was inspired to start experimenting with making my own drink in a fudge.

Cue the unopened bottle of Saphire gin that has been sitting on my shelf for months. A perfect reason to bust it open.

A lime gin fudge was created and a layer of tonic flavored fudge was added on the top. I don't know how much this tastes like a gin and tonic (a bit) but is it ever delicious.

Gin & Tonic Fudge

For the Lime Gin Fudge Layer:


  • 28 ounces white chocolate
  • 1- 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime jiuce
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup gin


  • Grease an 8X8 inch pan and set aside
  • In a heat proof bowl, microwave the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and salt 30 seconds at a time. Remove the bowl and stir the mixture in between.
  • When everything is melted and smooth, stir in the gin, lime juice and zest.
  • Pour into the pan and place in the freezer while you prepare the top layer.

For the Tonic Fudge Layer:


  • 2 cups tonic water
  • 10 ounces white chocolate
  • 7 ounces condensed milk


  • Place the gin in a heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat.  When the tonic becomes syrupy, remove from heat and set aside.
  • Place the chocolate and tonic in a heat proof bowl and microwave 30 seconds at a time. Remove the bowl and stir the mixture in between until everything is melted together.
  • Stir in the tonic syrup.
  • Remove the lime gin fuge from the freezer and spread the tonic fudge layer on top.
  • Place in the fridge until hardened. Cut into squares and serve.
