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.
- 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.
