Gin and Tonic

 Yap. It isn't joke, yesterday I had felt power of gin- earlier i thought it's only for chicks ,but nothing more misleading!

 And I fall in love in this bitter taste.
Gin is spirit made from grain and flavored with a mixture of botanicals and predominately the juniper berries. It is the juniper berries that gives gin its distinctive aroma and evergreen flavor.
First made in Holland, Gin was popularized by the English in the 1640s.
Gin was the drink of the English working class and they brought to the US. The majority of Gin sold in the US is London Dry Gin.





Ingredients:
- 2 oz gin
- 4 oz tonic water
Garnish: lime/lemon slices

Pour both ingredients into a short glass over ice. Put lime/lemon slices and enjoy!

*****
placing the glass in the refrigerator before serving is a good idea

  2. I had a Gin & Tonic for the first time the other day, and was pleasantly surprised with the taste. Theoretically, I would hate it, but it worked out well for me.
