Cocktail Recipe: Dave Arnold’s Lazyman Gin & Tonic

Written by
Gin & Tonic.

Dave Arnold spent seven years perfecting the Gin & Tonic, but he says he’s not done tinkering just yet. His version, which he serves at his cocktail bar Booker and Dax in New York involves Tanqueray, housemade quinine simple syrup, filtered water, saline solution, clarified lime juice and forced carbonation. (You can hear him describe the process in the interview with Evan Kleiman above.)

For our purposes, we assume that you don’t have access to quinine sulfate or a rotovap, so below we give you Arnold’s lazy-man G&T, or as he describes it in his book Liquid Intelligence, “The Best G&T You Can Muster If You Can’t Muster Much.”
