A Gin and Tonic is one of those classic cocktails that can be as simple as ice, gin and some tonic or done better. This is the better version.
- 1 1/2 shots good Gin; either Bombay Sapphire or Hendricks
- Lime Wedge
- Tonic Water to fill the glass (usually it is about 3.5 shots so use a tall glass); NOTE - if you don’t specifically buy diet tonic water, it nowadays has sugar in it and you’re getting a hell of a lot more calories than you expect.
- In a tall glass, put ice.
- Add the Gin.
- Top with the Tonic.
- Squeeze the lime into the glass and then run the lime around the rim to ensure that every sip has a nice limey taste.
