How to make a Roku gin and ton


  • fine, elongated canes of fresh ginger
  • Tonica 1724
  • 3-4 cl gin
  • Ice


FORMAT: Tall and wide cup


First we will fill the cup with ice and remove with the help of the teaspoon. Then remove the excess water.

Secondly, we will serve the gin from above to oxygenate the mixture.

Thirdly, add the ginger canes to the glass, letting them rest for a few seconds so that the ice absorbs the aroma.

Then, with the help of a slide-like spoon, we let the tonic slowly slip into the cup. In this way we prevent the bubble from breaking and keep the carbonic at its point.

Finally, we let it rest for 30 seconds so that the ingredients start to fuse properly and… to enjoy! You already have a Japanese gin tonic.
