The story: Spaniards can’t get enough of the effervescent gin and tonic, a seemingly simple highball cocktail they unabashedly complicate with botanical tonics, fresh fruit, herbs, and other aromatic accessories in giant wine goblets. At Barceloneta, South Beach’s version of a Catalan tapas bar, there’s an impressive list of 10 G&Ts made with gins to please every palate.
Take your pick, and take an Uber:
Clasico Martin Miller’s gin with grated lime zest
Martin Miller’s gin with flamed orange zest, Amarena cherries (bitter Italian dark cherries)
Hendrick’s gin with cucumber, mint, spicy-sweet guindilla peppers (of the Basque region)
Citadelle gin with fresh grapefruit, nutmeg
