It looks like I am probably getting a few bottles of gin for Christmas. I was thinking instead of having just gin, or gin and tonic I might buy some soft drinks to mix and make a nice cocktail, or perhaps invest in one other liquor. Any ideas on what is awesome and cheap to go with gin?

Tanq and Tonic is the extent of my Gin knowlege.

You would be better off going with Rum or Tequila. They play well with others.

Get a good quality gin like bombay sapphire, some french dry vermouth like Noilly Prat and make a martini. Just a touch of vermouth though, not too much. About 3 shots of gin. STIR that together in a cocktail shaker. Don't fucking shake it, I don't care what James Bond does. Strain it into a CHILLED cocktail glass. Stirring clouds the drink. I almost left my wife because of this. Garnish with one olive, which should be rinsed off first so you're not drinking brine. Repeat as needed until blackout occurs.
