How do you make a gin and tonic as quickly and easily as possible? There are many recipes and garnishes you can use, so let's take a look at how you can prepare the best gin and tonic for your ideal aperitif!
1) Fill a sphere- or long drink glass and fill it with ice. You prefer to use ice blocks that are as large as possible, this way your ice melts much less quickly. The more ice, the better: “irisce, ice baby“!
2) Use a bar measure to measure out 5cl of gin. Make sure that you 1/4 gin en 3/4 tonic, that is the ideal ratio.
3) Finally, you finish your gin and tonic with a garnish. Which garnish? For this you look at the ingredients. A gin must contain juniper to be called a gin. Because of this you can never miss out with juniper berries. On the other hand, you can also use other garnishes depending on what is in your gin. With a gin-tonic from The Ghentist you best finish your gin-tonic with 2 slices of Granny Smith apple, since you can accentuate the apple touch of the gin extra. Finally, you can also enhance the lavender and violet flavor by finishing with a flower.
4) Stir the gin and tonic briefly with a bar spoon to obtain the ideal gin and tonic mix! The only thing left for you now, is enjoying, health!
