Best Gin and Tonic Recipe with Tips
The key to a great gin and tonic recipe is to balance the bitterness of tonic water against the gin. Never tasting one too much more than the other. We share our favorite recipe and tips so you can make a balanced, refreshing cocktail. A London dry gin (such as Beefeater), Plymouth or Bombay work well. London dry gins will be more straightforward in flavor while Plymouth gin will be a bit more aromatic. We’ve also used Bombay Sapphire and loved it, but we really enjoy Sapphire’s extra spiciness.
You Will Need
3 ounces (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) gin
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lime juice
4 ounces (1/2 cup) tonic water
Lime wedge or slice
Adam and Joanne's Tips
- Adjust the amount of gin called for in our recipe based on how strong you enjoy your cocktails.
- If you really want to up your game, make homemade tonic ice cubes. This way as they melt in your drink, it won’t dilute with water.
- Nutrition Facts: The nutrition facts provided below are estimates. We have used the USDA Supertracker recipe calculator to calculate approximate values.
