Bartender’s hint:  The Gin and Tonic is possibly one of the easiest cocktails to make since you can successfully “eyeball” the measurements and get it right every time, regardless of the size or shape of serving glass you’re using.  Here are the three keys to making your Gin and Tonic better than the next guy’s:  1) Fill the glass completely to the rim with ice before adding any other ingredients; 2) Use lots of fresh lime juice; and 3) Always add the gin before you add the tonic water.  Trust me — there IS a difference!
