This is the second best way to consume delicious Gin (a martini up with olive is the best, but that is a whole other day). That is, of course, if you like Gin as much as I do. It is not a taste that everyone appreciates.
It has long been my theory that Gin and Tonic is medicinal. Tonic Water includes quinine which protects you from malaria. Limes help prevent scurvy. Ice helps treat the overheated. Gin makes everything better. I am not the only one who feels this way.
So enjoy a Gin and Tonic today. You cannot exist only on a Gin and Tonic. Sometimes you need to augment it with the olives in a Martini. Enjoy!
