15. Gin and Tonic

Gin and Tonic is a timeless and refreshing cocktail that has been enjoyed for generations. It is believed to have originated in India during the 19th century when British soldiers added gin to their daily dose of quinine tonic water, which was consumed to prevent malaria.


  1. Gin 60 ml;
  2. Tonic water;
  3. Lime wedge for garnish.

How to make a Gin and Tonic:

Begin by adding ice to a highball glass. Next, pour in the gin and top it up with tonic water. Use a gentle stir to mix the ingredients together. Finally, add a lime wedge as a garnish.

Achieving a great Gin and Tonic largely depends on the quality of the ingredients used. The gin should be a good quality London dry gin, while the tonic water should be a high-quality brand that is not overly sweet. Not only does a fresh lime garnish complement the botanicals in the gin, but it also provides a zesty burst of citrus that enhances the overall flavor of the cocktail. It’s easy to make, and the refreshing combination of gin and tonic water is always a crowd-pleaser.
