The Gin Sonic is a refreshing twist on the classic Gin & Tonic, combining gin with equal parts tonic water and club soda. This cocktail, popular in Japan, offers a lighter and less sweet alternative to the traditional G&T, allowing the gin’s botanical flavors to shine through. Here’s how to make this delightful drink.


  • 1 1/2 oz Gin such as Roku
  • 2 1/4 oz Club Soda
  • 2 1/4 oz Tonic Water
  • Yuzu Twist Garnish:


Prepare the Glass:

  • Fill a highball glass with ice. The highball glass is ideal as it provides enough space for the mix of soda and tonic, enhancing the drink’s refreshing qualities.

Combine the Ingredients:

  • Pour 1 1/2 oz of gin into the glass.
  • Add 2 1/4 oz of club soda.
  • Add 2 1/4 oz of tonic water. The combination of club soda and tonic water reduces the sweetness and bitterness, allowing the gin’s botanicals to stand out.


  • Garnish with a yuzu twist. The yuzu adds a unique citrusy aroma that complements the gin’s flavors. If yuzu is unavailable, a lemon, lime, or cucumber garnish can be used, depending on the gin’s botanicals.


  • Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing Gin Sonic.


The Gin Sonic is perfect for those who find the traditional Gin & Tonic too sweet or bitter. By splitting the tonic water with club soda, this cocktail offers a balanced and refreshing drink that highlights the gin’s flavors. It’s ideal for summer and can be easily customized with different garnishes to suit the gin you choose.
