It’s a question I’m often asked at my gin tasting events. “What’s the best garnish for a gin and tonic?”
After reeling off my favourite garnishes for a good 5 minutes, I realised that I needed to put together a post on this, so here are 12 Gin and Tonic garnishes you must try. The gins I’ve suggested are just some options, there are no hard and fast rules. Simply look at the botanicals used in making a particular gin and choose a garnish that you think will complement or enhance those ingredients.

Knew I’d forget those!
Blueberries are a must with Brockmans!
Thanks for the tip!
Nice article. The pink grapefruit in the first picture is actually red grapefruit though – slightly sweeter and more fragrant than pink.
Try using ripe nectarine, perfect for summer
My all time favourite: Hernö Gin, Elderflower tonic, fresh blueberries and basil!
I reckon Poor Toms with Strawberry and Granny Smith apple is a tasty tasty combo.
At The Buckeye Roadhouse its St George gin Bette Janes tonic Cilantro and and pinch of Pink Grapefruit .
