Before you stock your bar and pour this cocktail haphazardly, we have a few rules on constructing the perfect gin and ton that you must follow. First, make sure that the gin is ice cold. Second, use a lime instead of a lemon. Third, always use bottled tonic water, never fountain pumped. And finally, the true key to a successful gin and tonic lies in the layering of the ingredients. Follow this recipe and we promise you'll hae a perfect cocktail every time.
First, take your lime wedge and rim the glass before giving it a gently squeeze and placing it at the bottom of your Collin’s glass.
Next plop in two to three ice cubes and fill half of the glass (rough three ounces) with the chilled gin.
Finally, top with the chilled tonic water and allow to settle for a few moments before enjoying.
