  • A gin and tonic is a highball cocktail made with gin and tonic water poured over ice. It is usually garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. The amount of gin varies according to taste. Suggested ratios of gin-to-tonic are 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, and 2:3. In some countries, gin and tonic is marketed pre-mixed in single-serving cans. In the United States, most bars will use tonic from a soda gun; to get a real gin and tonic, mixologist Dale DeGroff recommends specifying bottled tonic. Alternatively, one can add tonic syrup to soda water. It is commonly referred to as a "G and T" in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland. In some parts of the world, it is called a "Gin Tonic". Some brands will replace the word "gin" with their own brand or initial in recipes. For instance, "Sapphire and Tonic" for Bombay Sapphire, "Hendrick's and Tonic" for Hendrick's Gin, or "T&T" for Tanqueray.
