Gin Tonic

The Technique

Here are a few things I’ve learned about Gin tonics:

  • Never add a whole wedge of lemon or lime to the drink; the pulp kills the bubbles. Simply rub the side and inside of the glass with a lime or lemon peel. I took a lime to make a change on this one.
  • The golden ratio for Gin tonic is 3 for 1, which means 3 parts tonic for 1 part gin.
  • Another point about the perfect gin tonic is the ice cubes. The fewer minerals and the more purified the water, the better the preservation of the gin’s flavours.
  • You’ll need lots of it in this big ball glass to keep those bubbles trapped under the ice cubes. When the glass is filled with ice, let it cool with the help of the ice for a few minutes, then discard the water from the melted ice cubes after about 5 minutes.
  • Add your gin high enough to hit the ice cubes and release all its flavours. Then, pour the pink pepper tonic on the back of a spoon (pros do it this way) or close to the glass to keep the bubbles as intact as possible. Give it a final twirl and serve.

I saw all kinds of gin and tonics. I really enjoyed this one because it is slightly spicy, thanks to pink pepper tonic. I’ve used Bombay Sapphire Gin for this drink because it’s my favourite for this cocktail, but here is a lovely list of the best gin on the market you could try (Click here).
