Gin Tonic Cocktail

Summer is now in full swing, and we know that on cool evenings gin and tonic is the perfect cocktail to accompany your aperitifs. But do you know the history and the perfect Gin & Tonic recipe?

The cocktail was introduced by the British East India Company’s army in India. In India and other tropical regions, malaria was a persistent problem. In the 1700s, Scottish physician George Cleghorn studied how quinine, a traditional cure for malaria, could be used to prevent the disease.Quinine was drunk in tonic water, but the bitter taste was unpleasant.British officers in India in the early 19th century began adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime and gin to quinine to make the drink more palatable, thus gin tonic was born.

But let’s come to the official recipe of our splendid cocktail: how to prepare a perfect gin and tonic? First rule: no improvising the doses…so fill a baloon-type glass with food-grade ice, then pour:

  • 50 ml gin
  • 100 ml of premium tonic
  • Lemon or lime slices and zest.

During preparation, help yourself with a measuring cup to calibrate the doses.
