    What? You never stir a Gin and Tonic. That is why they say you make a gin and tonic but you drink a tonic and gin. The flavor of the gin should get more intense as you drink it. And never let anyone make one of these for you with one of those squirt hoses. I recommend using Schwepps tonic water.
