  • Ice – Freeze tonic water into ice cubes for best results
  • Garnish – lemon or orange

How to Make a Proper Gin and Tonic Recipe

Directions

  1. Add gin using a jigger.
  2. Fill half the glass with tonic.
  3. Add as much ice as you can fit into the glass. If you use tonic water ice cubes they melt extra fast, so make sure your tonic water is also quite chilled. Using tonic water ice cubes tastes better as it melts, though.
  4. Slice a fine wheel of lemon or orange to use as a garnish. The fruit brings out the citrus undertones in the gin.
  5. Stir in a bit more tonic if needed.
  6. Drink responsibly, and never drink and drive.

For a drink like this, you need your gin to be the best quality. This is not a mixed drink where the alcohol taste is covered up by a bunch of other mix-ins. Quality gin is a must. Use Beefeater Dry Gin for the very best flavor. Learn more about Beefeater Gin.
