I LOVE a good gin and tonic! Maybe it's the English in me coming out. This is a definite classic! An oldy but a goody. Go for a good quality gin and don't add the extra lime juice, keep it clean and simple. I do like the lime garnish though - Cheers! Read More

The gin and tonic... Two ingredients that many folks love to hate! I however enjoy the flavor of gin and I'm learning to appreciate tonic water. I recommend staying away from diet tonic though! Yuck! A good rule of thumb is 1 part gin to two parts tonic. Add a squeeze of lemon (or lime if you prefer). I think the tablespoon of lime juice and wedge of lime are a bit much for me. Like another reviewer I've also tried this with a splash of Rose's sweetened lime juice instead. Refreshing! Read More

To us Brits, a G&T comes with a wedge of lemon. Lime will do at a push, but lemon is the way to go! Read More

Absolutely ethereal. These drinks remind me of my dead grandmother who went to heaven. Truly a gift from above.(Only someone from below could hate them and if they were from below they cannot be from Arkansas). Read More

Instead of the fresh lime juice; add 1/2 to 1 shot of Rose's Lime Juice. Great! Read More
