These Are The Best Gin And Tonic Recipes To Celebrate G &T Day

April 9 marks International Gin & Tonic Day and has given us the occasion to revisit old cocktail recipes and craft new ones that are rooted in this wonderfully distilled drink. No why do people drink gin and tonic? Originally a remedy given by British doctors with lime or lemon peels to make it more palatable. It takes the best parts of two existing drinks and put them together.

Now that warmer weather is finally approaching, it has allowed us to sample flavorful and refreshing cocktails made with gin. Therefore, we thought this would be the ideal time to celebrate G& T Day with some of the best gin and tonic recipes.

So are you feeling the gin craze? We hope so as we share some delicious ways to drink more gin this spring/summer. Below is our list of cocktail recipes involving the most exciting spirit today, whether you fancy a traditional G & T or a Gin and Tonic variation with a unique twist that highlights the spirit’s exceptional blend of botanicals and smooth finish.

Fill a balloon glass with ice. The large diameter rim will bring out all of the nuances of the gin. Put lemon peel in the glass to boost the flavour of the gin. Gently swirl the ice to cool the glass. Then gradually add The London Nº1 until the bluish color is well-distributed throughout the glass. Add tonic water for each part of gin. Do so slowly so the bubbles remain strong. Garnish with an aromatic lime peel and add some juniper berries.
