A Gin Tonic comes to mind when you want to order gin online and think of ways to spice up this alcohol and adapt it for hot summer evenings. Gin with a tonic is a bar culture classic. The cocktail comes not from Britain, as one might think, but from nineteenth-century British India. At least that’s what the legend says. British soldiers who came to the South Asian colony were forced to protect themselves from malaria and escape thirst. They did so with tonic water. The drink consisted of the bark of the cinquefoil tree. The quinine contained in it (that’s why it is bitter) is still used to treat malaria and a little bit added to tonics. These tonics began diluting with gin, so the famous “Gin Tonic” appeared. The fashion for it spread from Britain as London is also the world capital of bar culture. The main cocktail trends still often come from there.
