In London, GINSTR was voted the world's best gin for gin & tonic. Among 600 brands from 90 countries, GINSTR - Stuttgart Dry Gin was officially the best gin in the world!
But how do you make the world's best gin & tonic?
2/3 Tonic Water
1 rosemary sprig
1 lemon zest
Fill the glass to the brim with ice cubes, the more, the better - the drink will not water down, as the cubes cool each other.
Then pour GINSTR into the glass and pour tonic water on top. The amount of gin depends on personal taste. We recommend a mixing ratio of 1:2 (normal) or 1:3 (weak).
Then add a sprig of rosemary and a lemon zest to the glass. You peel this with a thin knife or a zest ripper from the skin of a washed lemon.
The best gin & tonic in the world is ready.
PS: It is up to you which tonic water you use. The IWSC has tasted all 600 gin brands in London with the Fever-Tree Indian Tonic. With that we won the Gin & Tonic Trophy, so that would be the winning recipe. We ourselves prefer the Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic because it is more spicy and floral. If you like it very classic, take the very dry Schweppes Dry (silver label) and if you prefer it a little sweeter: Thomas Henry Indian Tonic. But we haven't tried any tonic water that didn't go with GINSTR - so give it a try!
