The Perfect G&T

How to Make The Perfect Gin & Tonic?

The Gin and Tonic remains a timeless classic and is enjoyed around the world in countless variations. It is celebrated for its simplicity, balance, and versatility, making it a drink that can be customised to suit individual tastes. "The Perfect G&T" follows in this tradition, offering a premium Australian Dry Gin paired with high-quality Indian Tonic, and garnished with orange slices and basil for a modern twist on this iconic concoction.


  • 60 ml Australian Dry Gin
  • Premium Indian Tonic

Garnish: Orange Slices and Basil


1. Select the Right Glassware:
Begin by choosing a copa glass (also known as a gin balloon glass) for your cocktail. The wide bowl of the copa glass allows for the perfect presentation and aroma appreciation of the G&T.

2. Build the Cocktail:
Start by adding 60 ml of Australian Dry Gin directly into the copa glass. The choice of Australian Dry Gin brings a unique and flavourful twist to the classic G&T.

3. Add Ice:
Fill the glass with ice cubes, ensuring they adequately chill the mixture without over-diluting it. The ice plays a critical role in keeping the drink cool and enhancing its overall experience.

4. Top with Premium Indian Tonic:
Slowly pour premium Indian Tonic (we suggest Fever Tree Indian Tonic) over the gin and ice in the copa glass. The tonic should be added to your preferred level of dilution and effervescence. This balance can vary depending on your personal taste.

5. Stir Gently:
Give the cocktail a gentle stir using a long bar spoon. This helps mix the gin and tonic evenly, ensuring a well-balanced flavour profile.

6. Garnish with Orange Slices and Basil:
To elevate the drink's visual appeal and add a burst of aromatic freshness, garnish your Perfect G&T with thin slices of orange and a sprig of fresh basil. The citrusy aroma of the orange slices and the herbal notes of the basil complement the botanicals in the gin beautifully.

7. Serve and Enjoy:
Your Perfect G&T is now ready to be enjoyed. This classic cocktail is known for its refreshing and harmonious blend of flavours, where the botanicals of the gin marry with the bright and effervescent tonic, while the garnishes add an extra layer of aroma and taste.

Sip slowly, appreciating the complexity and simplicity of this timeless cocktail. Whether enjoyed as a prelude to dinner or as a relaxing refreshment on a warm day, "The Perfect G&T" is sure to quench your thirst and delight your palate. Cheers!
