It's been one of those weeks around here which means the weekend calls for a cocktail that is simple, delicious and does the trick. On the menu? Gin + tonics.
The simplicity of the gin + tonic is what makes it so easy. But since it only involves two main ingredients, it also requires that your ingredients are good.
- tonic water
- limes or lemons
Gin has a wide range of flavors from the super dry and juniper-y to more mellow floral flavors. If you don't already have a gin you like, take a gander at this Eater piece to help figure out a gin that will be a good fit for your palate. The same attention needs to be paid to the tonic water too. Skip the grocery store brand and opt for a higher quality tonic like Feverfew or Q Tonic.

Another great thing about the G+T is that since there are just two ingredients, you can adjust the ratio to your personal preference. Opt for 1 part gin to 3 -4 parts tonic for a less boozy option or if you've had one of those weeks too, change the ratio to 1:2. Make it in a old-fashioned or rocks glass and you can measure by just eyeballing the amounts. Easy peasy.
- Fill an old fashioned or rocks glass with ice.
- Squeeze desired numbers of limes over ice.
- Add a finger-width of gin (or more depending on your ratio)
- Top with tonic.
- Stir and enjoy!
