There's no denying that the brand of gin you use as the base for your gin and tonic makes a huge difference — no great drink has ever started with sub-par spirits. But you might be surprised that the quality of tonic makes as much of a difference, if not more, than the gin. Which is why you should ditch the generic stuff you've been using and step up to Jack Rudy Small Batch Tonic. Handmade in small batches in South Carolina, this magic elixir is designed to pair beautifully with great gin, with a mix of quinine, botanicals, and cane sugar. Splash in a little soda water to open things up, and enjoy.
There's few things you can drink that offer the kick of a quickly-quaffed shot. And with these Alexander Wang Shot Glasses, you can take one anywhere/anytime you feel like it — and do so in style. Each of the four included glasses is made from 100% stainless steel with a pale gold finish, and stacks up so as to fit inside the included carrying case, made from black snakeskin-embossed material that's PVC on the outside and suede on the inside (so as to not scratch your glasses). As for the liquor itself? That's up to you.
