It’s Gin ‘O’ Clock with Tanqueray London Dry and Meghna Balaji, Brand Ambassador at Diageo India
The word “Gin” today conjures up romantic notions of craft revival clubbed with botanicals blends. With the ongoing gin revolution, gin experimentation has been on a rise.
A wide range of botanicals across gin styles bring in a fresh approach to the category, proving once and for all that there is a gin out there for everyone. Whether in a composed cocktail or a highball, gin has won our hearts over, as the complexity of this liquid really does transform other flavours.
Keeping that mind, the ‘Gin Renaissance’ is incomplete without this ubiquitous colonial tipple, The Classic Gin & Tonic. This combination moves the growth needle at pace and is the perfect entry for new drinkers. For those that enjoy a simple highball, the Gin & Tonic allows you to really customise a gin style with tonic or mixer, based on personal flavour preference.
All you need is three ingredients to make it perfect. And easy as it may seem, it is the true test of a bartender’s attention to detail.
This International G&T Day, Diageo India is helping you do exactly what a ginthusiast should do.

Whenever you are making a tall drink that contains carbonation of some sort, always ensure that 1 part of your spirit goes with 3 parts of your mixer. To ensure that both of them chilled to the T and poured over copious amounts of ice. This is imperative as it retains the carbonation and allows the flavors to slowly develop on your palate.
Here’s a T&T recipe for all those indoor rooftop evenings.
