Just when you thought the long Easter weekend couldn’t get any better, we’re here to bring you the news that it coincides with international Gin and Tonic Day on April 9.

That’s right, the day dedicated to the iconic tipple falls on a Sunday where there’s no work the next day.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

So, after rooting around in your garden for chocolate eggs, why not do some London bar hopping?

Sustainable drinks brand, Lixir Drinks, have gifted Londoners with a tube map revealing the cheapest G&T nearest to each station in zone 1.

The cheapest gin and tonic can be found at The Huntley near Euston Square station, where a Tanqueray and tonic somehow only costs £3.25.

For gin lovers south of the river, The Ring near Southwark station offers a beefeater and tonic for £6.10.

Pubs near St Paul’s Station and The Courtfield at Earl’s Court Station are a little on the pricey side, where drinkers will pay an eye-watering £10 for Beefeater or Bombay.

To keep costs down, opt for Beefeater. This costs an average of £7.24 for a single tonic, with the cheapest pub for a single found at The Angel, next to Angel station priced at £5.41.

The second most common gin is Bombay, costing an average of £7.76 for a single with tonic in London.

If going out this Easter weekend isn’t something you fancy, but you still want to have a lovely G&T to celebrate, try out these recipes in the comfort of your own kitchen.
