The secret of a perfect gin tonic? A perfect gin

{
}

A perfect gin tonic has just one secret to hide. Or perhaps two. Firstly, we need a gin of good quality. Secondly it is important that the mixture doesn't predominate the original flavours of the gin: nor fancy tonics nor random condiments. Just quality and simplicity, and then enjoy it!

Classic gin tonic

To create an authentic version of this cocktail, it is recommendable to choose a classic gin like Seagrams or Tanqueray which is predominated by notes of juniper berry. 

 TAGS:undefinedIngredients:

  • a shot of Seagrams gin
  • a bottle of Fever Tree tonic
  • ice made of low-mineral water
  • a lemon
  • four or five juniper berries 

Preparation:

First of all, we fill a balloon glass with ice. After that we cut a stripe of lemon peel (separating the white zest), squeeze it into the glass, sweep it along the edge of the glass and and then add the ice. Afterwards we mash some juniper berries without busting them and also place them into the balloon glass. After having laced the gin, we finally pour over the tonic water smoothly. Help yourself with a braided spoon to serve it more easily!

Citric gin tonic 

For this recipe, it is recommendable to choose a gin with citric notes as p.e. Citadelle: A gin which offers not only a convincing lemon touch, but also a smooth and aromatic flavour.

Floral gin tonic

The floral touch will be provided by using a gin like Bulldog which is predominated by botancis as poppy seeds and longan. You can also add some dried leaves of lavender, orange flower and roses.

 TAGS:undefinedIngredients:

  • a shot of Bulldog gin
  • a bottle of Boyan tonic water
  • ice made of low-mineral water
  • a moderated quantity of dried leaves of lavender, orange flower and roses

Preparation:

First of all, we fill a balloon glass with ice. After that we add the dried leaves of lavender, orange flower and roses. After having laced the gin, we finally pour over the tonic water smoothly. Help yourself with a braided spoon to serve it more easily! We let it rest for a moment to hydrate the leaves and serve it.

 

 

 

 

Now you just have to enjoy your gin tonic. Let yourself be overwhelmed by this fresh and special palate. Cheers!
