1.5-2.0 oz Tanqueray Gin,
3-4.0 oz Tonic water
Method: Fill glass with Ice, add Gin, then Tonic water, squeeze a lime wedge over the drink and add as garnish. Stir slightly so as to not flatten the carbonation and serve.
I had forgotten this classic over the years, what with my driving passion for Bushmill’s, but Mike mentioned it in passing one afternoon and I decided to add it to our drink list for game day. Of course it was a success, so much so that the TnT has become Mike’s main cocktail when we all get together switching only occasionally to a Dark and Stormy for variety.
Even Tuna, who has an unending thirst for dark rum, will have a Tanqueray or two when the fancy strikes him. If you are looking for an easy to pour, light cocktail that tastes wonderful you can’t go wrong with the classic; Tanqueray and Tonic.
