April 4 is Gin & Tonic Day

April 4 is Gin & Tonic Day in Europe and October 19 is International Gin & Tonic Day (in case you wondered if there are any days in the year dedicated the world's most popular cocktail). Made from dry gin, carbonated quinine water and garnished with lime or lemon peel, it's a strong, refreshing and slightly bitter drink.
