Gin & Tonic

A quintessential sun-downer. But behind its seemingly simple facade lies a complex warren of possibilities and choices.

Ingredients (In this order)

  • Ice
  • 50ml dry gin
  • 150ml chilled tonic water
  • Garnish with a wedge of lime


Ideally your glass would be chilled and filled with ice. By using plenty of ice, the drink is kept cooler for longer; a solitary ice cube is a fast track to a watery Gin & Tonic. Chilling the tonic water beforehand is essential; there is no substitute for a fizzier and less sweet drink.
