FOOD HOLIDAY: World Gin Day

Today is World Gin Day, a holiday created by Neil Houston of Birmingham, England. It started modestly in 2009 when Houston. who reviews gin on his website, Yet Another Gin, gathered some friends. It has since turned into a worldwide celebration.

“World Gin Day is a celebration of all things gin,” says Houston, “and a chance to mix up your favourite G&T [gin and tonic]or other gin cocktail.”

We’ll go for the G&T: as delicious as it is simple to prepare.

GIN & TONIC RECIPE

Ingredints

  • 3 ounces London Dry Gin
  • 4 ounces tonic water
  • 1 table fresh lime juice
  • Garnish: Lime wedge
  • Ice cubes or tonic water ice cubes (see below)
  •  
    Preparation

    1. FILL a highball glass with ice cubes. Add the gin, tonic water and lime juice. Stir thoroughly to blend.

    2. GARNISH with lime wedge and serve.
     
    Preparation

    To prevent dilution of your drink, use our favorite trick: Make ice cubes with the tonic water (or iced tea ice cubes for iced tea, juice ice cubes for juice, etc.)

    Simply freeze tonic water in an ice cube tray. We use a covered ice cube tray to keep the cubes tasting fresh, but you can use plastic wrap.

     
    THE HISTORY OF GIN & TONIC

    Historically, spirits were created for medicinal purposes. So was the G&T.

    Malaria was a persistent problem in the world‘s tropical regions. In the 1700s, quinine, a muscle relaxant developed from the bark of the cinchona tree by the Quechua natives of Peru, was found to be helpful in treating the disease.

    Like much medicine, quinine had an unpleasant, bitter taste. In the early 19th century, British officers in India inadvertently created tonic water (quinine water) by adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime and gin to the quinine.

    Today‘s quinine water contains much less quinine, since it is no longer used as an antimalarial. That‘s why some people enjoy it as a soft drink.
