    I LOVE a good gin and tonic! Maybe it's the English in me coming out. This is a definite classic! An oldy but a goody. Go for a good quality gin and don't add the extra lime juice, keep it clean and simple. I do like the lime garnish though - Cheers!  -  23 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Sorry...much too much lime juice! Choose between the juice and the wedge.  -  11 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
