International Gin & Tonic Day - SIC Lifestyle

International Gin & Tonic Day

October 19th is Gin & Tonic day. We want to help you get prepared for this very important holiday by helping you create the perfect Gin & Tonic. This may sound pretty silly for a drink with 2 ingredients and doesn't require shaking or stirring. With just 2 ingredients we recommend using good gin and good tonic... Below are a few of our top choices.

Gin: A spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. Our top recommendations are:

  1. Hendrick's Gin
  2. St. George Gin
  3. Tanqueray Gin

Tonic: When roughly 2/3 of your drink (depending on how stiff you like to pour it) is tonic, we recommend choosing a higher quality tonic. Our top 3 are:

  1. Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic Water
  2. Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water
  3. Boylan Heritage Tonic Water

Now follow these simple steps to complete your perfect G&T...

  1. Fill your 12oz Insulated Tumbler with ice
  2. Squeeze in one lime wedge
  3. Add 2oz Gin
  4. Add 4oz-5oz Tonic
  5. Garnish with lime & rosemary

* SIC Pro Tip - The SIC 12oz tumbler is the perfect cocktail cup as it fits perfectly in your cup holder and will keep ice from melting (which can ruin your perfect G&T). Need a bigger option try out the 20oz insulated tumbler.

Cheers to a perfect Gin & Tonic!
