Classic and easy to make, and light and refreshing to taste, a gin & tonic is a highball cocktail that’s perfect all-year round — and especially in the summer months.
Starting with two simple ingredients, the art of this gin-based cocktail lies in the ratio between the spirit and the tonic soda. The bubbly tonic in a G&T delivers the elevated flavour, transporting the chemicals up and into the tastebuds, while the ice adds a cool and crisp finish.
There are so many ways to add your own unique spin to the bright, zesty, and tried-and-tried gin & tonic, which provides lots of room for cocktail-mixing experimentation.
Driven by originality, creativity, and spontaneity, Montreal-based gin brand romeo’s gin idea of a “perfect serve” is their reimagined take on the classic gin & tonic cocktail, mixed with fresh elderflower tonic water, along with a surprising note of dill and a delicate touch of lavender with the garnish.
In addition to their take on G&T, romeo’s gin has a selection of curated gin-based cocktail recipes that bring out and blend together the flavour profiles of the spirits and fruits of the summer season.
