Classic Gin & Tonic recipe

How to make a basic gin and tonic

  1. Start off with a chilled gin and tonic glass
  2. Add fresh ice cubes to fill ¾ of the glass
  3. Stir gently for 15 seconds with a bar spoon to chill the glass further
  4. Pour away any liquid from the melted ice
  5. Top up the glass with more ice
  6. Add the gin, trying to ensure that you coat the ice as you pour
  7. Add the tonic water – pouring slowly helps the tonic keep its fizz
  8. Add your desired botanicals
  9. Let rest for 30 seconds to allow the flavours to integrate with each other
  10. Enjoy!

Garnish

Lemon or lime – slice or wedge.
