This popular drink was born in the 19th century from British soldiers who believed that it would counteract malaria during their stay in India. They believed that the quinine, the bitter ingredient in the tonic, was effective against the disease (it wasn’t), but that didn’t stop them from enjoying this simplistically elegant drink.
1 Part Gin
2 Parts Tonic
On the rocks poured over ice and garnish with lemon slice. Enjoy
Note: This drink is simple, there's no shaking, no stirring, just you pouring everything into the glass. The name literally is the recipe.
