Did you know:

This cocktail dates back to 1750, when British naval officers added quinine to gin to treat fever. So popular was this «medicine» that it caused a rise in alcoholism in England. However, it was not until establishments dedicated purely to gin consumption opened the mid 1800s that the Gin Tonic became a respectable beverage.
