Gin and Tonics Spanish Style (Plus A Cooking Class) At Bar Ferdinand


Over at Bar Ferdinand, they’re getting fancy with what is perhaps the simplest of cocktails: the elegant, understated gin and tonic. Apparently, the “gin tonic” (as it is known in Spain) is just all the rage among Spanish drinkers, so the bar at Bar Ferdinand has taken to offering the simple, two-step cocktail in a variety of formats.
