My Limoncello Gin and Tonic Cocktail has over the last couple of years become a regular at my own cocktail bar.

There’s no expensive equipment required, only a steady hand! I implore you to try this out before you serve it to guests – it’s only right that you have high quality control standards.

Ingredients for 1 serving

50 mlLimoncello (lemon liqueur)
25 mlGin
75 mlTonic Water
75 mlSan Pellegrino Limonata
75 mlCloudy Lemonade
50gLemon (rind only for decoration)


Gin Glass


  • Add the ice to your gin glass and add the Limoncello, gin, tonic water and lemonade.
  • Stir.
  • Add a sliver of lemon rind to garnish.


  • I use a London Dry Gin. Using a gin that has other flavourings other than traditional botanicals will change the flavour of the final drink.
  • If you like to use a quality tonic such as Fever-Tree, then consider using their pairing tool [1] to pick the tonic to compliment the gin you plan to use. I’ve included a link below.
