The Gin And Tonic is the in-style cocktail. There is no doubt about that: everybody has participated in this new culture of well-served gin, with thousands of different hints and tastes, a new world… Or maybe not that much. The Gin And Tonic is a historical cocktail, one of the oldest cocktails of the menus of bars and restaurants around the planet.
It is a cocktail that speaks of victory, of conquers, of celebration. It has a British origin, as it was a British officer who had the idea of combining the gin and the tonic to refresh the troops after the triumphs in battlefields. According to some sources, this officer chose the gin for being one of the most beneficial alcoholic drinks for health —and because it was one of the most famous digestive medicines in the market— when combined with the tonic, which contains quinine, a substance which was thought to fight malaria.
In any case, even then there was an authentic passion for this cocktail. Then, the cocktail was pushed right into the background for years, overshadowed by other tastes that arrived from the Caribbean, like the rum. But the Gin and Tonic fever has come back with force. Today, meeting in order to have a well-prepared Gin and Tonic is almost a ritual for many people.
