This elegant twist on the beloved gin and tonic is an effortless way to improve its flavor. The very simple secret: four dashes of humble bitters.

Actually, this also could serve as a take on the classic British cocktail Pink Gin (gin and bitters), with tonic water added.

Servings: 1
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces gin, preferably Plymouth brand
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Tonic water
  • 1 lemon wedge, for garnish


Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the gin and bitters, then top with tonic water and stir gently. Garnish with the lemon wedge.
