There seems to be fewer and fewer people who don’t like gin and tonic, and any opportunity to drink this intoxicating blend is a good opportunity. If you haven’t already planned tonight’s outing or an after-work drink, now is the time. We love this mega-popular drink so much that we celebrate everything about it - June is World Gin Day, October is World Gin and Tonic Day, April is National Gin and Tonic Day in America. Apart from the fact that we offer so many gins, the same goes for tonics, so the combinations are really unlimited, whatever your heart desires, and you can add various spices to make them taste as special as possible and at the same time be very photogenic. 

So if you decide to celebrate this great holiday at home, we bring you the three best recipes to make your gin and tonic perfect.
