Gin & Tonic. Such a simple drink, yet the variations in the manner of its preparation and service seem endless. I am proposing a compendium of these variants to document its history and hopefully provide a guide for those who might be seeking a truly satisfying Gin & Tonic in an unsuspecting place. Just the facts... the good, the bad, and the ugly. Does the tonic come out of the gun or a bottle? What did it cost? What is the rail gin? Aristocrat (Spirits of 76) or Plymouth (Rare Tavern)? There is a time and place for each. My suggestion is that the list be limited to examples you actually drank, and not just plucked off a cocktail menu somewhere. I'll kick it off with the GTF at Baba Cocktail Bar. Cucumber infused gin (I believe this is done in-house, but honestly I did not see where it came from). Fever Tree elderflower tonic. Rose water. Edible flower petals. Citrus essence. Lime. Glass poured with half of the tonic and you are given the rest of the Fever Tree bottle to mix to your taste. $11. A strong offering. --- Gin Recipes - Letting the Gin Take Center Stage (PoolBoy)
