The Perfect Gin Tonic for Summer: History and Ultimate Recipe

With the arrival of summer, the gin and tonic establishes itself as the ideal cocktail to accompany your relaxing moments during aperitifs. Let’s discover together the fascinating history of this timeless Gin & Tonic and the perfect recipe for making it.

History of Gin Tonic

The origin of this cocktail dates back to the British East India Company’s army in India in the 18th century. In tropical regions such as India, malaria was a persistent challenge. One of the physicians of the time, Dr. George Cleghorn, studied quinine, a traditional treatment for malaria, and how it could be used to prevent the disease.

Quinine was consumed with tonic water, but its bitter taste was unpleasant. British officers in India in the 19th century began adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime and gin to quinine to make the drink more palatable. Thus was born the gin and tonic.

Perfect Gin Tonic Recipe

Now, on to the official recipe for making your perfect gin and tonic. Follow the doses carefully to achieve the maximum balance of flavors:


  • 50 ml gin
  • 100 ml premium tonic
  • Slices and peels of lemon or lime


  1. Fill a balloon-type glass with food-grade ice.
  2. Pour 50 ml of gin into the glass.
  3. Add 100 ml of premium tonic.

Using a measuring cup, calibrate the doses to ensure a perfect mixture. The balloon glass, with its wide shape, allows scents to diffuse optimally, giving you a complete tasting experience.
