How To Make A Perfect Gin & Tonic

How To Make A Perfect Gin & Tonic
 

Perhaps our favourite way to enjoy gin is in a Gin and Tonic. A typical recipe is three parts tonic to one part gin, which means even if you use the best gin in the world, a cut-rate tonic will make a sub-par drink. That’s why we started carrying some special tonic waters; Capi and StrangeLove.

Ingredients:

  • 60mL Gin
  • Tonic to fill
  • Ice

Garnish options:

  • Citrus slice (lime, orange, grapefruit),
  • Herbs (rosemary, lemon thyme, basil, lavender)
  • Fruit (blueberries, strawberries, apples, cucumber, chili peppers)
  • Spices (cinnamon stick, star anise, peppercorns)

Steps:

  1. Fill a highball or collins glass with ice
  2. Pour the gin, then the tonic into the ice
  3. Stir well with a long spoon
  4. Top with a garnish that complements the flavours and aromas of your chosen gin
  5. Enjoy!
