Today we’re celebrating International Gin & Tonic Day, so we’ve compiled our guide to help you mix the perfect gin and tonic every single time. It might be a simple drink but equally has a lot of hurdles with the possibility to fall at, but fear not, we are here to help. Keep reading to discover…
Glass: We recommend using a tall collins style glass for a long, refreshing serve. It ensures there is plenty of room for the ingredients.
Gin: Add a 25ml or 50ml measure of your favourite Chase Gin. Using a jigger to measure ensures you achieve the right balance between spirit and the mixer – not too much and not too little but just the right amount so you can taste the true flavour of the gin.
Ice: Don’t under-estimated the power of ice in your drink; large, solid, clear ice cubes are preferred and ensure you fill the glass right to the top to ensure a perfectly cool drink and longer-lasting ice.
Tonic: A good quality tonic is key – we recommend searching for one that really lets the flavour of the gin shine through.
Stir: Push a bar spoon to the bottom of the drink and really gently stir to combine the ingredients and cool the drink.
Garnish: To finish, search for the best garnish to complement your serve. Each of our gin and tonic recipes can help you with this one – head to the recipe section on our website here to discover.
