How to make a Gin and Tonic

The G&T is one of the easiest concoctions (alongside the Cuba Libre and Boilermaker) to put together. It’s literally made just using the two items in its name – gin and tonic – mixed together. Yet somehow, from this simple two-ingredient recipe, spawned countless variations enjoyed but everyone. The quality of the only components, the gin and the tonic, thus also massively affects how the final drink tastes. It is a drink that can get as complex as you want as well, given the simplicity of the base elements. Below, we show you how to make a classic Gin and Tonic, but feel free to experiment at home with whatever else you have.
