"This tastes best in the summertime on a hot afternoon."

Servings: 1
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes


1 jigger Beefeater gin
3 each quality ice cubes
quality tonic water, to fill glass
one each lemon wedge
angostura bitters (optional)


1. Add a jigger of Beefeater gin to a chilled Collins glass.

2. Lower in three ice cubes, making sure not to drop them and splash the gin.

3. Pour the tonic water over the top, filling the glass up to the top. You want a 2-to-4 ratio of gin to tonic water.

4. If you want to make a pink gin and tonic, add a few dashes of angostura bitters, until the drink takes on a very faint pink-orange hue.
