    Movie was on TCM yesterday. Unfortunately, this was the best scene in the whole movie.

    False. G&T needs as much ice as possible.

    I like lots of ice. It melts more slowly when there's lots, so the sips are tastier and fizzier.

    Y'all 'r dead to me. More good drinks are ruined by dilution than cheap ingredients.

    Granted, cold is good for G&Ts - just keep your ingredients in the refrigerator.

    And drink fast and frequently.

    I'm in the "small glass stuffed full of ice" camp. And there is NEVER enough time for sufficient ice to melt to dilute anything. I mean... those glasses are practically shot glasses, anyways.

    Gin stays in the freezer, tonic in the fridge.

    Solution: drink fast, drink often.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    At least as much ice as you can fit in the glass.

    I know some people that insist on having an extra glass or bowl of just ice on the side.

    Had some of this recently. Distilled in Vermont. Good stuff, quite noticeable juniper flavor, sweetened a bit with some raw honey. They have another gin they make, Tom Cat Gin, but I haven't tried it.

    Yeah it sounds weird but it's definitely not sweet per se, just kind of balanced I guess you'd say.

    here's a review, they liked it: https://theginisin.com/gin-reviews/barr-hill-gin/

    For the G? Hendricks. Always.
    For the T? Light Signature Select.
    And for the citrus...Lemon Sicilia.

    Over ice on a hot summer’s day - nothing finer in my humble opinion. Cheers!

    Back to the good, good. That corn based gin didn't cut it for me. Regardless of the view.

    Elderberry tonic? Really??

    Fack; not only did I mistakenly say elderberry instead of elderflower, it's actually citrus.

    Two wrongs make a ...... dumbass.

    You know, I saw some fever tree in the store Friday and grabbed some. The elderflower makes a damn fine drink with some sapphire.

    Fever Tree's getting a little carried away - they now offer 8 different types of tonic. Most seem superfluous but I must admit the "aromatic" tonic looks intriguing.
