This summer I’ve been really into gin and tonics. They’re easy to make, delicious, and can change dramatically depending on your gin and tonic water of choice.
Gin is something I’ve always paid close attention to, but until this year I wasn’t super specific about the tonic water I selected. Tonic water is tonic water, right? Sure, there are small differences between the different brands, but not enough to make a huge difference in the quality of my cocktail, right? Wrong.
The tonic water you select is arguably just as important as the gin you use. Different tonic waters will add different flavors to your finished cocktail, and will ultimately determine whether or not you’ll actually like it.
Think you’re ready to branch out from your standard grocery brand? Here are some of the leading tonic waters out there, and how they’ll impact your Gin and Tonic.
