Bitter Truth Gin & Tonic

If you love the original G&T but are itching to mix it up a bit, drop the tonic water and add natural grapefruit soda for a citrusy change of pace. You definitely still need that tonic flavor, though—so opt for a quality tonic syrup that delivers the bitter quinine without the extra water. Citrus-forward Tanqueray No. TEN Gin ties it all together, making the Bitter Truth cocktail the solution to boring G&Ts everywhere.
