About this Food
The classic Gin and Tonic, or G&T, is a cocktail made with gin and tonic water. It is usually poured over lots of ice and garnished with a slice of lime, or lemon.
Gin and Tonic was invented in the 1700s by British East India Company army personnel, who were desperately seeking a way to make their quinine more palatable. To combat malaria, each person was required to take quinine, a bitter substance derived from tree bark. They mixed the bitter quinine into their treasured rations of gin and tonic water, and the G&T was born. Today, there are many variations on the drink, but the essence of that same bittersweet refreshment remains.
Calories in Gin and Tonic
