Gin & Soda

Gin and Soda highball cocktail with - you guessed it, gin and soda. And citrus!

The Gin & Soda is, as The New York Times’ Cooking section puts it, an “un-recipe.” Like nearly all spirit-and-soda cocktails, we start it at a 2:4 ratio and adjust to taste.

While it’s not the most exciting drink, it is a useful one; this is almost always the first recipe we use with a brand-new bottle of gin we haven’t tried before. The effervescence of soda water opens up the spirit’s flavors, allowing for a better appreciation of the unique notes of any gin.

This old recipe takes on a totally new character when seltzer or club soda are swapped for flavored, unsweetened sparkling water. We especially like it with a citrus-flavored sparkling water – but just about any flavor you can get is improved with gin, we think.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
