Who doesn’t love good festive gin and tonics ? In this post I have made some delicious suggestions for you, on how to serve some festive gin and tonics that both taste and looks good.
Over the past years gin and tonic increased in popularity, and for a good reason, the market for both gins and tonics is wide, with many options to find the perfect taste just for you and your next bubbly treat.
A gin and tonic can take you in so many different directions, depending on the gin and tonic you’ll use. The botanicals which are used in the making of them makes a huge difference in how your gin and tonic will taste. I really like to experiment with the taste in a gin a tonic, using modifyers or a tonic that I think pairs well with the gin.
The visual appereace of the cocktail is important and can easily reach a wow-effect, either by building in layers, torching a sprig of herb or pouring in the tonic in front of the consumer (or the camera). Gin and tonic should be a festive, bubbly and delicious thirst quencher.

Tip ! For a plain gin and tonic I recommend to use 1 part gin to 2 parts tonic water and always use plenty of ice.
Cheers & enjoy !
