Royal Gin and Tonic
- 4 lime wedges
- 1 1/3 cups gin
- 2 cups tonic water
- 4 cups ice cubes
- 1 cup Champagne
- Skewered lime wedges
Place 4 glasses in the freezer to chill. Before serving, rub the inside of each glass with a lime wedge. For each drink, pour 1/3 cup gin, 1/2 cup tonic water, and 1 cup ice cubes in a martini shaker. Shake once or twice. Strain into a glass just until the liquid is about 2 inches below the brim (do not overfill). Top each cocktail with 1/4 cup Champagne. Serve immediately with skewered lime wedges.
Traditional gin and tonic gets the royal treatment with the addition of Champagne to each serving. Garnish Royal Gin and Tonic with skewered lime wedges.
