BULLDOG Gin Sonic Cocktail

Discover the exquisite flavors of the BULLDOG gin sonic cocktail, accentuated by its iconic charred lemon wedge garnish. The combination of gin with a balanced blend of tonic and soda offers a refreshing and lighter drink, perfect for any occasion.


  • 50ml BULLDOG gin
  • 75ml chilled tonic water
  • 75ml chilled soda water
  • Ice cubes
  • Charred lemon wedge, for garnish
  • Black highball glass


  1. Preparation: Begin by chilling your highball glass to ensure your drink stays cool for longer. You can do this by filling the glass with ice cubes and letting it sit for a minute or two.
  2. Ready the Glass: After the glass has been chilled, empty out the ice and any excess water. Refill the glass with fresh ice cubes, ensuring they reach about three-quarters of the way up.
  3. Add the Gin: Using a jigger or measuring tool, pour 50ml of BULLDOG gin over the ice.
  4. Mixing: Top off the gin with 75ml each of chilled tonic water and soda water. These two components create the “sonic” combination, giving a lighter carbonation and taste compared to just using tonic alone.
  5. Stir: Gently stir the drink to mix the ingredients without losing the effervescence of the tonic and soda.
  6. Garnish: Take a slice of lemon and char it slightly using a culinary torch or over an open flame. This not only looks great but also adds a smoky, caramelized aroma and flavor to the drink. Drop this charred lemon wedge into your drink.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Once your drink is perfectly garnished, take a moment to appreciate its beauty, then sip and relax.

The BULLDOG gin sonic is an ideal drink for those who enjoy the botanicals of gin but are looking for a lighter, more refreshing experience. Cheers!
