Talented Slovenian mixologist Kevin Kos prepared and tasted three versions of the iconic Gin and Tonic cocktail from three different timelines. The first is a recipe from the 1850s that uses dry gin and tonic syrup with carbonated water, the second uses Spanish gin with Mediterranean tonic water in a goblet, and the third features Japanese gin, saline, and Indian tonic water in a highball glass with tall ice slice.
If you ask your parents or grandparents what cocktails they enjoyed when they were young, chances are the Gin & Tonic will be among the answers. So today we’re taking a look at this simple mix of gin & tonic – where it started, how it evolved and how I enjoy it today. I’ll make 3 versions, from the oldest, to the modern, and I’ll let you know what I think about them.
