GIN & TONIC, FRESH AND CLASSIC

Gin is a type of spirit characterized by the flavor of juniper berries. Gin makers produce gin by infusing neutral spirit with botanical ingredients during the distillation process. Together with the perfect tonic water makes it one of the freshest and preferred summer drinks.  

As you might know, you can find in the market a great variety of gins, all types of garnishes and the options for glassware are even more comprehensive.  

For this fresh and classic Gin & Tonic we have chosen Libbey SPKSY and the Joya Gin & Tonic stemware. Libbey SPKSY for a more luxury feeling with its rounded bowl and the elegant stem, Libbey Joya Gin & Tonic for a more informal moment in all its minimalism! Both bowl shapes allow the wonderful aromas of the drink to be released, adding extra flavor to the drinking experience.  

What do you need?

150 ml Tonic water

50 ml London Dry gin

Clear ice

A twist of lime peel

Garnish: two slides of cucumber or redcurrants

INSTRUCTION FOR MAKING THE COCKTAIL

STEP 1

Add a large quantity of clear ice. The more ice you add, the slower it will melt and dilute your drink. 

STEP 2

The key to a perfect Gin & Tonic recipe is to balance the bitterness of the tonic against the gin. So, on top of the ice, pour a measure of gin followed by three times as much tonic water. 

STEP 3

Peel off a stripe of limetwist it over the top of the glass for the oils to be releasedCut two slices of cucumber and drop them into the glass. It then takes four stirsno moreno less! 

STEP 4

As an alternative to the cucumber, you can use two or three cloves or a sprig of redcurrants. All of them go really well with Gin & Tonic.  

We suggest you enjoy it directly from the glass, not with a straw so that you get the total flavor experience. 

Cheers! 🍹
