Bitter Burst-Perfect Gin & Tonic

Ingredients
50ml Premium Gin
150ml Three Cents Tonic Water

Method

Origin
Adding Gin to Tonic water originated in India during the 19th century. Malaria was a deadly disease at that time and so it was common to mix water with quinine as a remedy. They added gin to their tonic water to cut its bitter taste. Finally, they added a citrus touch and the drink quickly became world’s most famous mixed drink.

Tips

Adding gin straight from the freezer, helps you lower the temperature of the drink and therefore helps you keep the effervescent character of the drink for much longer.
