Gin and tonic is one of Britain's favourite drinks and has a long and complex history. It was born in the mid 1800's when colonialists in India would drink tonic water infused heavily with quinine - an extract that was believed to cure and prevent malaria. This early tonic water was quite unpalatable, so by adding gin, sugar and ice, sipping perfection was achieved. Scurvy was also a problem at that time so the addition of a slice of lime or lemon would make the drink even more health giving.
Perfect for someone who loves cocktails without the hassle of finding the shaker. MG Spirits cocktails are so easy to serve - pour over crushed ice and add a garnish of choice.
