The Gin & Tonic. I’m not sure there is a better summer cocktail. This classic drink is so cool and refreshing — it can make any warm, beautiful summer day even better! There is no special equipment needed no special ingredients you have to find; the Gin & Tonic is just simple and straightforward.
I like to use classically British gins for my Gin & Tonic, but there are so many good local gin makers that you really can’t go wrong. One option that is always tasty is to use one of the citrus flavored gins that are out there such as Tanqueray’s Rangpur gin, which has a lime flavor, or Bombay Sapphire East, which has lemongrass and peppercorns.
Whether you change it up or keep it classic, a Gin & Tonic is always a hit!
