Gin and tonic has been my drink of choice for many years. It’s refreshing, simple to mix and easy to sup. I rarely drink anything else when I’m out (although if red wine’s on the cards I can always be persuaded).
You will need:
Bottle of Hendrick’s Gin
Bottle of Schweppes Tonic Water
Making a G&T is an entirely straightforward process. Ice goes in glass. Gin follows ice. Top with tonic (Schweppes is the original and best, in my opinion). Then add… cucumber?
And this is where it can go so wrong. Normally, gin and tonic is served with lime but Hendrick’s and cucumber were made for each other, and no other finishing flourish will do. Slice up a little cucumber, slip it into your glass and we’re good to go.
A little something for the weekend, maybe? Cheers!
