How to Make the
Gin & Tonic
Put your gin & glass in the freezer before you make the G&T.
A perfect cocktail is a cold cocktail.
Fill your glass all the way with ice.
Adding more ice will help to not water down your drink by keeping the ice frozen longer.
Use a ratio of 1:4 for gin to tonic.
For a single, use one shot (44mL) of gin and 200mL of tonic water. Adjust to taste.
With a long spoon, gently mix the ice, gin and tonic in the glass for about 30 seconds to combine fully.
Both for taste and appearance, add a pretty garnish.
My favourites are cucumber, lime or both!
Make sure you love your brand of tonic and gin - with such a simple drink, quality is important!
