Gin & Tonic

A G&T is a gin lover’s staple. Adelaide Gin pairs well with a lighter style of tonic and a slice of orange, to really let the floral botanicals in the gin come forward. As an alternative, an Elderflower tonic makes a lovely pairing.


1 part Adelaide Gin
3 parts tonic water
A slice of orange


It doesn’t get much simpler than this.
Fill a highball glass with ice, pour in the gin and then top with a great tonic (not the cheap stuff). Stir well. Add a slice of fresh orange to your Adelaide Gin to really complement the floral nature of the gin.


The ideal ratio of gin to tonic varies according to taste. There is a trend towards a boozier version with 1 part gin to 2 parts tonic, but we suggest you have some fun experimenting to find your perfect mix!
