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.
Try with: Hendrick’s Gin
Try with: Tanqueray Rangpur, McHenry & Sons Navy Strength, Opihr Spice Gin, G’vine Floraison Gin
Try with: Gin Mare, Melbourne Gin Company, KIS Wild Gin
Try with: The West Winds Cutlass
I’d love to hear about your favourite garnishes!
