The Ultimate Gin & Tonic

The Ultimate Gin & Tonic


Classic and easy, the gin and tonic (or G&T) is light and refreshing. It's a simple mixed drink—requiring just the two ingredients—and is perfect for happy hour, dinner, or anytime you simply want an invigorating beverage.

One thing to keep in mind is that your gin and tonic is only as good as both the gin and the tonic. Explore some of the great tonic waters that have sprung up thanks to this drink's resurgence in popular. Schweppes Tonic Water is worth checking out because it is designed specifically for mixed drinks like this.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 4–5​ ounces tonic water
  • Garnish:​ lime wedge


  1. In a high ball or balloon glass filled with ice cubes, pour the gin, then top with tonic.
  2. Gently stir so as to combine, but not so much so that you lose carbonation.
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge.
