How to make a Gin and Tonic

How to make a Tanqueray and TonicThis is actually quite a simple drink to mix, however a few small steps can make it one of your favorites. First off, I tend to like Tanqueray over many others, but by all means choose your favorite gin. Beefeater, Bombay Sapphire, Plymouth, Tanqueray Ten, etc. are all excellent choices so just experiment and find which you prefer. The true secret to the mix are your lemons and limes. Do NOT skimp on your lemons and limes so have plenty on hand. Next you’ll need ice and tonic and you are good to go. I also tend to use diet tonic because I don’t notice a flavor difference in the end result, and this makes the wife a little happier that I’m paying attention to the waistline.

Ingredients for a Gin & Tonic

  • Ice
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1-2 limes
  • 1-3 oz of Gin (We prefer Tanqueray)
  • 3 oz of Tonic
  • Large Glass

Directions to Make a Gin and Tonic

Directions to make a Gin & tonicStart with a large glass and a good portion of ice; fill the glass about 2/3 full with ice. Next pour your gin to the level of your comfort. Go slow because you can always add a more if needed. Next wash and slice the lemon and lime into quarters. The secret to the proper gin and tonic are the lemons and lime slices. Depending on the size of the glass you are using squeeze at least 2 lemon slices liberally into the glass and when done, throw the rinds in. Do the same with 3 of the lime slices. Then fill the glass the rest of the way with tonic. However, when I make this drink for my sister-in-law I’ll go through a full lemon and near 2 limes per drink for her. The combo of the two hides any alcohol taste very well, which she prefers.

I tend to like this drink on the sweeter side so I will use a little more lime. If you prefer tart, go heavier on the lemon. The lime will control the sweetness for you, and the lemon will always make it more sour. This drink is tough to beat on a nice summer day. Cheers!

I “Hate” Dr Oz

This is a site for men, or more to the point, this is a site for men in relationships. Husbands, boyfriends and men that have to deal with the daily grind of life, and are then subject to the ensnaring power of Doctor Oz over our better half, the women in our lives.

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr Oz is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him...specifically ☺
