Here are the keys to the very best gin and tonic, a classic 2-ingredient cocktail! A few secrets take this botanical drink over the top.


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) gin
  • 4 ounces (8 tablespoons) tonic water
  • Garnish ideas: Lime, lemon, cucumber, mint, orange peel, juniper berries, blood orange slice, rosemary


  1. Add lots of ice to a large cocktail or wine glass and stir to chill the glass. Drain any melted water.
  2. Pour in the gin. Add the garnishes. Pour the tonic water onto a bar spoon into the glass (to increase the bubbles). Stir once and serve.
