Gin and tonics have been a staple among the list of amazing cocktails out there.

They are known for being bitter, but with some lime and sugar, they can be palatable for people that aren’t big fans of bitter drinks.

It is World Gin And Tonic Day on October 19 and Bombay Sapphire, one of the world leaders when it comes to Gin, recommends keeping a few cocktails handy so you can celebrate the day in style.
