Recipe for success: three ideas for the perfect gin and tonic
The humble gin and tonic; what can go wrong and what more can be done to such a simple drink? The answer to both questions is, actually, quite a lot.

The difference between an outstanding G&T and a terrible one is the way the ingredients are used and in what proportions. Even a basic one can be made great by using the right quantity of ice, a garnish and topping with the perfect amount of tonic.

Here we’re showing you how to serve two perfect G&Ts, as well as a rhubarb and ginger by using Fever-Tree mixers.

The trick to the best-looking and best-tasting long gin drink is starting with a large glass full of ice and topping with Fever-Tree, which allows the gin to shine through, without unbalancing the drink.

Finally, an eye-catching and fragrant garnish will get the drinker excited, as well as other customers in the vicinity.
