It combines the herbal, sometimes floral or citrusy, complexities of gin with the quinine-based bitterness of tonic water, balancing the two for a pleasantly crisp and effervescent beverage. Typically served in a highball glass, the drink is garnished with a slice of lime which adds a zesty, aromatic twist. This garnish is not only decorative but also contributes to the cocktail's bright and clean taste profile, making it a popular choice in social gatherings and a staple in bars around the world.

~ One of my visitors suggested that she enjoys her G&T with a slice of lime rather than lemon. Give it a try you might well love it, I know I did. ~
