Gin & Tonic is the long-drink among long-drinks. It can always be prepared quickly, but its taste can be varied easily at the same time. Countless types of gin with their diverse taste profiles guarantee this – whether with a strong juniper note, lots of botanicals, dry or sweet – the gin shelf offers something for everyone’s taste. To go along with the wide range of gins, we also offer a wide range of tonics. Real purists and fans of drinks with reduced sugar probably prefer to order a Dry Gin & Tonic mixed with our Dry Tonic. This premium mixer impresses with its refreshingly dry note. With just 6.5 g sugar per 100 ml, it isn’t as sweet as its classic counterpart, while harmonizing perfectly with modern New Western gins. You can also enjoy its dry charm with vermouth or low ABV spirits. It’s worth it. Cheers!

HOW TO MIX THE PERFECT HIGHBALL

One thing is clear: besides choosing the best matching spirits, keeping a maximum of carbonic acid in a drink is also very important. That’s why your mixers, spirits, and other ingredients should always be well-chilled. After opening your mixers, keep them tightly closed and let them chill again. You don’t need a jigger for measuring, since it results in a loss of fizziness. And it’s best to strain fresh juices, which means filtering out sediments such as fruit pulp with a bar strainer. The structure of a highball is naturally also very important. First, fill a glass with ice – large ice balls or cubes if possible. Then pour in the spirits and other ingredients, fill up with the chilled mixer at a 45° angle and gently stir it. Last but not least comes the garnish. Make sure to remove the peel from the fruit correctly. That’s it.

THE GARNISH GAME

Your Gin & Tonic is mixed in no time. That’s good, since now you’ve got time to give your drink its own special note. Let the garnish game begin! When it comes to the garnish, let your creativity run free. We recommend: All the botanicals that are found in the gin being used can also be used as a garnish. Rosemary and thyme, for instance, always make a good herbal garnish. But if you and your guests prefer things fruity, use a twist of orange or lime or some cucumber. If possible, always of organic quality. As a friend of experimentation, you can also be daring and go your very own way: Why not use sweet pepper, cinnamon sticks, dried berries, or curry powder? Yes, why not?
