Cocktail Of The Month: Filliers Tonic @ Tiger


Listen up, Parisians: It’s G&T time. Of course you’ve had a mediocre “gin tonique” before but we’re all about #renewal this month and I’m here to tell you that the Gin & Tonic is seeing new life in France. The revitalized retro cocktail is what in-the-know Lolos are reaching for.

Where to revisit this refreshing concept? At the newest, chicest, best gin bar in town: Tiger.

The Left Bank gem devotes an entire section of their menu to the classic drink—each with a specific gin, house-made tonic and garnish. Tiger’s knowledgeable and adorable bartenders will steer you to a stellar spirit; they even have barrel-and-bottle aged cocktails—ask for a sip! Our current fave, however, is the Filliers Tonic. A G&T made with a cheeky Belgian gin, house tonic and kumquat garnish. Served “piscine style,” so it comes with plenty of ice in a balloon glass you can easily dive into.

If you’re still hibernating at home, order a bottle of Filliers Gin (Tangerine Edition) online and make one for yourself.

Serving Size: One Cocktail

Filliers Tonic @ Tiger


  • One shot of Filliers Tangerine Edition Gin
  • Tonic (proportions to your preference, but for “piscine style,” try 1 part gin to 4 parts tonic)


  1. Pour gin and tonic over ice in a large glass
  2. Stir lightly to keep the tonic bubbly
  3. Garnish with sliced kumquats



13 Rue Princesse, 75006

LES LOLOS Tip: You don’t have to make your own tonic, though Tiger’s must be tried because it’s amazing. Luckily, some of the more interesting and artisanal tonics like Fever Tree can now be found at Monoprix.
