Death Gin & Tonic
July 6, 2020
Don’t be fooled into thinking that a G&T is just a G&T. Because as soon as you mix in a little Death Gin, it’s not a standard drink anymore.
It’s a goddamn legend.
Making the perfect G&T
The perfect G&T doesn’t just happen. There are a number of important factors to consider if you want your taste buds and your brain cells to indulge in the drink of a lifetime.
- The Gin: When it comes to making the perfect G&T, the gin maketh the drink. If you’re in the mood for something refreshingly dry and also sassy AF, get your socks off with a contemporary Australian gin like our Death Gin – Original blend.
- The Tonic: We love a good tonic water, but your go-to G&T doesn’t have to be made with the stuff. Is soda more your style? What about mineral water or sparkling? Whatever wets your G&T whistle, try it out as a tonic alternative to find the perfect mix for you.
- The Ratio: A seasoned gin drinker will know the exact gin to tonic ratio that works best for them. If you’re new to gin, know that ratio is everything. Too little, and the flavour is lost in the tonic. Too much, and you’ll be getting a taxi home.
Whatever the G&T whims of other people, don’t concern yourself so much with what they do – make your Death Gin & Tonic unique to you.
And if you are planning on getting a taxi home, don’t let us hold you back. Go wild. Live a little. Up that gin to tonic ratio.
- Ice cubes
- 50 mls* of your favourite Death Gin
- 150 mls* tonic water (our fav is Strangelove Dirty Tonic Water)
- Lime to garnish
*Note that measurements may vary depending on the size of glass you’re using. The safest bet is to go with a 1:3 ratio – 1 part gin, 2 parts tonic water.
Fill a highball glass (or favourite gin glass of your choosing) with ice
Pour over gin
Top up with tonic water until the glass is full
Garnish with a lime wedge or slice
