GGG+T stands for “Grapefruit, Ginger, Gin and Tonic” – a brilliant combination that we didn’t even realize we were missing in our lives. Each ingredient brings an important element to the drink: bright citrus from grapefruit and lime, rich spice from the ginger beer, crisp herbal notes from the gin, and the sweet tang of tonic water to tie it all together.
The recipe hails from the now-defunct Bad People Book Club, which was a service that’d send you a book and a cocktail recipe. It’s a shame they’re gone – but thankfully the Moody Mixologist saved the recipe in her blog, preserving it for future appreciators like us.
London Dry gin is the standard for gins-and-tonic – but this one is just as good with aged gin, or a citrus-forward gin, or even a botanical gin like Hendrick’s.
Build the ingredients in the order given, in a tall ice-filled glass. Stir gently to combine. Garnish with slices of grapefruit and lime, and serve with a straw.
