Yes, there’s a national holiday for the classic gin & tonic (April 9) and we can’t wait to celebrate. This cocktail is perfect to chill with during breezy, spring weekends and even throughout summer! We’re going to celebrate National Gin & Tonic Day with a twist, though — and taking note from The Minimalist Baker by adding coconut water to it. Cheers!
