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.
