Make sure you make the best Gin & Tonic twist by using a well-chilled premium tonic like Fever-Tree or Franklin & Sons. Ensure it is freshly opened too, as you want as much effervescence as possible for the classic uplifting serve. Use small cans or bottles then you know you’ll have a fresh fizzy G&T every time. Only save the 500ml and 1ltr bottles for when you know you’ve got a big party on with loads of friends/family coming around!
