The Gin Sonic is a popular drink in Japan, where tastes trend towards lighter drinks and a greater focus on quality ingredients. It’s a refreshing, crystal-clear long drink, well-suited to gins with character. The garnish you choose should reflect the gin’s botanicals – anything from a citrus twist to a fragrant herb contributes a fresh new dimension.
- 1½ parts Gin or Aged gin
- 2¼ parts Sparkling water
- 2¼ parts Tonic water
Build in the order given in an ice-filled tall glass. Garnish with a citrus twist, sprig of fresh herb, or edible flower.
