Simon’s Gin & Tonic

Simon’s Gin & Tonic

Simon’s Gin & Tonic is an object lesson in how creative reuse can produce serendipitous results. As the legend goes, bartended Shaun Layton was preparing a Martini, for a guest who had to leave before it could be served. As luck would have it, another guest ordered a Gin & Tonic, “dealer’s choice,” and Layton managed to rework the abandoned Martini into a G&T somehow greater than the sum of its parts.

It’s a crisp, refreshing twist on two classics, and it demands a London Dry or other gin with a bright, straightforward flavor – like Fords gin, for whose producer, Simon Ford, the drink was named.
