I've been drinking G&Ts like this for years. I prefer 2 oz Gin, 3.5-4oz Tonic, .5 oz Campari and .25 oz lime juice.

Great minds think alike.

If you have a little time, try freezing the Campari (or Aperol) with the lime in a Frosun. Makes for a rather special G&T variant.

Or cynar. Less lime (4 stars)
