- 2 oz dry gin
- Juice of half a lime, about ½ oz
- ½ oz simple syrup
- Tonic water to taste, about 4 to 6 oz
- Lime Wedge
- When you top off the glass with tonic, hold a bar spoon over your drink and pour the tonic over the spoon. This will prevent the soda from fizzing up, preserving all those effervescent bubbles for your tastebuds.
Fill a Collins glass halfway with ice. Add the gin, lime juice and simple syrup, then stir for 30 seconds, until the ice starts melting.
Top the glass off with tonic water. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve. Cheers!
