they had me at “team of foragers”
Summertime is gin and tonic time, as far as I’m concerned. Gin always seems to have a bad rap, probably because we all made the mistake of sampling our parents’ dusty bottles of Beefeater as teenagers, but a good quality, herby gin is truly delicious.
I picked up this Islay gin at the LCBO a few weeks ago, and it’s great. I waffled for a good 10 minutes about whether to stick with my beloved Hendrick’s or try this new one out, but ultimately went with the unknown because I got more air miles for it.
Summer in a glass
- 1 part gin
- 4 parts tonic water
Mix in a glass and/or mason jar, if you’re a hipster like me and all your cups are dirty. Sip and pretend you’re the queen of England.
If you want to get fancy, which sometimes I do, feel free to muddle some mint in there. Another delicious alternative is ginger syrup and soda water in place of the tonic.
