Here at The Gin Library we think we have perfected the Gin and Tonic. You might think that you need a whole load of fancy equipemnt and a bar fully stocked, but that is not the case. The perfect Gin and tonic is one that is kept simple.
- Get a good, craft gin, preferably British
- Use a Spanish glass (or large red wine glass)
- Ice is key – Go with larger pieces of ice if possible circular ones are recommended
- Tonic water: Fever Tree is my suggestion or schwepps will also do
Place the ice in the glass first. Then add the gin (1 part alcohol and 3 or 4 parts tonic.) Add the garnish or garnishes of your choice, as a default lemon, orange or grapefruit are my go-to citrus garnishes. Gently stir the ingredients for 3 – 5 seconds)
Serve and enjoy.
