Simon’s Gin & Tonic

Simon's Gin & Tonic highball cocktail with gin, dry vermouth, and tonic water

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.

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.
