Take any of your favourite highball glass and add 2 to 3 ice cubes to it. Remember if you do not have a highball glass then you can use any type that you find convenient. Also, try not to put in too much ice as this will make your drink watery.
Now carefully pour in 5 oz tonic water and 2 oz gin into the highball glass. Stir the mixture well until the ingredients mix thoroughly. Use London dry gin if it is easily available, as it is known for its quality. You will want a nice smooth texture to your mixture so be sure to check the consistency while you are stirring. Do not stir too much as this can make your drink light.
Your gin and tonic cocktail is ready, garnish it with a lemon wedge and serve immediately. It is entirely up to you as to how you want to garnish and serve this drink. Your friends and family members will spend countless hours sipping this delicious beverage.
