The G and T has become the dominant warm-weather gin cocktail, maybe because it’s one of the simplest: just gin, tonic water, and an aromatic boost from a lime wedge. Variations on the gin and tonic include taking it Barcelona style. And if you want to try making your own spiced tonic water, go for it.


  1. 1Take a chilled Old Fashioned glass and fill halfway with ice cubes. Add the gin (2 ounces for a standard drink, 3 ounces for a stiff one).
  2. 2Rub the lime wedge around the rim of the glass, squeeze in a few drops of juice, and drop the lime into the glass.
  3. 3Top with the tonic, give it a quick stir, and serve.
