The secret to the perfect G&T

Fancy yourself a G&T connoisseur? So do the folks at Fever-Tree. Their belief is simple, “when 3/4 of your drink is the mixer, make sure you mix with the best.”.

As the world’s leading premium mixer company, Fever-Tree is the go-to choice for bartenders and gin enthusiasts.

Fix yourself the perfect G&T for the Fever-Tree Gin & Tonic Festival with their recipe below.


3 parts Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water

1 part of a classic London Dry gin

Plenty of fresh ice

A twist of lime peel


The Spanish use a copa glass to serve gin and tonic – it’s a big balloon glass that lets the wonderful aromas of the drink’s botanicals be released, adding an extra level of flavour. At home, a large wine glass is a perfectly fine substitute.

Add the ice first; ideally, they will be large, clear cubes and you should have plenty of them – the more ice, the less likely they are to melt and dilute your drink. Pour over a measure of gin followed by three times as much of the Premium Indian Tonic Water.

As lime is a sweet citrus fruit, it works really well with a typical gin and tonic. It’s the oils in the rind we’re after here, rather than the juice of the fruit, so peel a strip from the outside, twist it over the top of the glass to spritz the oil into the drink, then drop into the glass.

Drink from the glass instead of through a straw to ensure you get the full flavour experience.
