To make these gin and tonic recipes, fill a rocks glass with ice. Add your herbs, fruit and or citrus and pour in the gin. Top with tonic water, stir and enjoy.

As for the tonic water, I’ve been using Fever Tree Indian Tonic water. There are other options out there including making your own (which I suggest if you have the time). If you’re interested in some other options, check out this article on the best tonic water for cocktails (and by best, I mean what I preferred best).
