    No second G&T has ever tasted as good as the first one. That's just a fact.

    If I owned a restaurant, I'd greet everyone at the door with a small super nice g&t.

    Ot maybe a hot toddy in the winter

    I'd install a rotating door on front for you and frequent it often.

    So ... it's a tonic and tonic??? No wonder you're so cavalier about your tonic.
    The gin's gotta tickle your nostril hairs to contribute properly. Remember: the ice is melting, and diluting.

    Basically I make a gin over ice and accessorize as required.

    No shit, right? People are arguing over $1/btl tonic water and this slides?

    Pint Glass. 4oz. Gin, 1 Small bottle Schweppes, Ice, 2 lime wedges.

    Forget Hendricks, forget sapphire, tanq, and the others ('cept maybe that Islay) this is better


    Made 15 miles from me. As Flyoverland sez, buy local

    And it's made from organic, free range, fair trade, cage-free, gluten free, nitrite free, non GMO, local juniper berries, sustainably hand harvested by virgins.

    Wait, how it is gluten free if it's made from wheat?

    I'm beginning to think it wasn't harvested by virgins either.

    It's made in Oregon.

    All the above is naturally assumed.

    I did not read the whole thread.

    But if you're a Hendricks fan, try the Botanist

    Ice says he only drinks one G&T, however that strong of a pour is four drinks. I prefer to get four fresh small drinks than one big one. I don't want the ice to melt. I want fresh limes. Etc. And lifting a pint glass is too much work if I am in a G&T state of mind.

    That's a better way to go no doubt. I get a lot of scrutiny though. I just try to keep everything on the dl to avoid controversy.

    Can't believe that there is no love for some "Q" tonic, especially in the summer mixed with Hendrick's

    The other half isn't a fan of gin but she discovered this french one in Paris called Citadelle. I guess its more slowly distilled and 'more delicate' whatever that means.

    I liked it, but I haven't seen it since.

    tl;dr French gin. Yeah.

    French Liquor. Heh. Many years ago I used to drink a pint glass of Grey Goose, neat, as my party drink. I'd sip on that and use it for the chaser of any shots we were doing or to cleanse the palate after a beer. Those were the days. Of course there were also a few incidents where I lost my shoes or woke up on a lawn. But hey, it was all in good fun. It did lead to one particularly funny moment when a friend choked a little bit on some wiskey shots we were doing and I, being the smart ass I am, handed him my glass of 'water'. Life imitates art. "It's fucking vodka!" I had waited years for that one. And it is something that only comes around once.

    Slow clap?

    I feel like that deserves a slow clap.

    I'm not sure that "neat" is the proper way to describe this.

    This guy....I mean, using vodka as a palate cleanser after shots? We could hang. Well I wouldn't last long these days, but I like the concept.

    I've never gotten in trouble for adding ice or tonic to my glass. It is what it is.

    on a related note, wife flew out of town early this AM and will be back around midnight, I got nothing I absolutely need to do, so I'm working a good day buzz here. Figure a nap for a couple hours this afternoon. What could go wrong?
