Classic, easy and light and perfect for a summer afternoon. The best Gin and Tonics are made with the best gins, especially those with a slight citrus flavor and a great blend of botanicals. Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray Rangpur are two of my favorites and if you like this recipe but are not a gin fan, you might want to try Vodka Tonic. Another simple variation adds orange juice: GTO Cocktail.

depends on which gin is used , as to amount of tonic, ie;- Hicksons needs 50-50. only max. NEVER STIR A G & T. ie;- gas in the tonic. although taste requirements prevail.
